New Study in Current Oncology
A prospective study, co-authored by MAB member Dr. Jean Seely, Feasibility Study and Clinical Impact of Incorporating Breast Tissue Density in High-Risk Breast Cancer Screening Assessment, assessed the feasibility and impact of incorporating breast tissue density (BTD) into the risk assessment of women referred to the High-Risk Ontario Breast Screening Program who were not genetic mutation carriers. Results showed that Incorporating BTD into risk assessment was feasible, did not increase the overall number of women eligible for B-MRI, and optimized supplemental B-MRI screening in women with dense breasts.
