ABSTRACT Background Mammograms contain information that predicts breast cancer risk. We recently discovered two novel mammogram-based breast cancer risk measures based on image brightness (Cirrocumulus) and texture (Cirrus) . It is not known whether these measures improve risk prediction when fitted together, and with an established measure of mammographic density (Cumulus). Methods We used three studies consisting of: 168 interval cases and 498 matched controls; 422 screen-detected cases and 1,197 matched controls; and 354 younger-diagnosis cases and 944 frequency-matched controls. We conducted conditional and unconditional logistic regression analyses of individually-and frequency-matched ..
