Abstract

Referrals to symptomatic breast clinics have increased significantly in recent years with unchanged numbers of detected cancers. The general practitioner (GP) referral information relating to this increased patient volume causes anxiety and potentially creates confusion and future medicolegal issues if inaccurate.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 February 2015.
All research outputs
#2,548,670
of 4,800,224 outputs
Outputs from Irish Journal of Medical Science
#109
of 266 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#81,111
of 146,013 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Irish Journal of Medical Science
#3
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,800,224 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 266 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 146,013 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 5 of them.
