Our Women in Science and New Research Findings
The 6th annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science was celebrated last Thursday, February 11th. The day highlights the important role women and girls play in science and technology. We are so fortunate to have an international team of dedicated women doctors who work year-round to assist in keeping DenseBreast-info.org an up-to-date and accurate resource on breast density. We were delighted to recognize these amazing women!
New study findings from Incorporating Baseline Breast Density When Screening Women at Average Risk for Breast Cancer advocate for breast density–stratified screening frequency with baseline mammography at age 40 years followed by annual screening at age 40 to 75 years for women with dense breasts and biennial screening at age 50 to 75 years for women without dense breasts.
