Density “Inform” in Canada
News Out of Canada
Ontario, Canada’s most populated province, has become the 7th province to require notification about breast density to women after screening mammography. Women will be informed of their specific density category (A, B, C or D) and the associated risks. Further, a draft recommendation to provide supplemental screening for women in category D (extremely dense breasts) is expected to be finalized in the Fall.
Two additional provinces, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland/Labrador have also committed to begin density notification in 2023. That will bring the total number of provinces with some level of density “inform” requirement to 9 (out of 10). Please visit DenseBreastsCanada.ca for more info.
