Who Needs More Screening? UPDATE
NEWS: Who Needs More Screening? flowchart update
- Our hard-working Medical Advisory Board has updated one of DenseBreast-info.org’s most frequently referenced tools. The Who Needs More Screening? flowchart* has been updated to include risk assessment by age 30 and expanded the indications for supplemental MRI. It takes into consideration updates to NCCN guidelines and the recent publications from the DENSE trial and EA1141 (Comparison of Abbreviated Breast MRI and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis in Breast Cancer Screening in Women with Dense Breasts).
- For those referencing or sharing the flowchart, please discontinue use of any prior version. Please contact us for direction on the update.
*European visitors, to access from DB-i/EU homepage, select Home/USA, then “For Health Professionals, tab” and then “Flow Chart” in the dropdown menu. An update to the EU screening flowchart will follow.
