Abstract

We will use mammograms and family history information collected by BreastScreen to update and improve our automated measures of mammographic density for the new era of digital mammograms. We will then develop a new risk prediction tool by combining the measure of mammographic density for digital mammograms with other risk factors so that information on risk can be given to women at the time of their scans. The results of this project will enable Australian women to receive tailored screening.
