New “Inform” Recommendations from EUSOBI!
Europe / Newly Published:
JUST OUT! EUSOBI recommends EU women be “informed” of breast density and supplemental screening considerations: Breast cancer screening in women with extremely dense breasts recommendations of the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI). Some highlights:
- “Because there is now a valid option to improve breast cancer screening, the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) recommends that women should be informed about their breast density. EUSOBI thus calls on all providers of mammography screening to share density information with the women being screened.”
- “In light of the available evidence, in women aged 50 to 70 years with extremely dense breasts, the EUSOBI now recommends offering screening breast MRI every 2 to 4 years.”
- “Where MRI is unavailable…ultrasound in combination with mammography may be used as an alternative.”
