Breast density is a radiologic term to describe the amount of ‘whiteness’ or density on mammograms. Breast density has become an important clinical factor in screening for breast cancer because it has been found to increase breast cancer risk and hide breast tumors on mammograms. There is a federal law pending that would require standard reporting of breast density to providers and women.
Research is ongoing to understand approaches and technologies that best measure breast density and patterns of breast density, the most accurate risk prediction models that incorporate breast density, factors that modify breast density, imaging modalities or combination of modalities that best detect tumors in women with high breast density, and how best to communicate breast density information and breast cancer risk to women.
Please join us to share your research on these topics and contribute to a great meeting of scientific discussion!
