Researchers Work on Measure to Decide if Mammogram is Compromised by Breast Density

HealthImaging (11/29, Maglaya) reports on a study presented at a radiology conference by James G. Mainprize, PhD, and colleagues who developed “a quantitative, objective measure of masking” in order to describe “the probability of missing a cancer (if present)” in a mammogram “due to the amount and patterns of dense tissue in the breast.” The researchers hope that the measure “could serve as an important tool” in determining whether a mammogram for “an individual woman is compromised due to breast density.”
