Quantitative classification of mammographic densities and breast cancer risk: results from the Canadian National Breast Screening Study.
BACKGROUND The radiographic appearance of the female breast varies from woman to woman depending on the relative amounts of fat and connective and epithelial tissues present. Variations in theExpand

The quantitative analysis of mammographic densities.
Quantitative classification of mammographic parenchyma based on radiological assessment has been shown to provide one of the strongest estimates of the risk of developing breast cancer. ExistingExpand

Mammographic density and the risk and detection of breast cancer.
BACKGROUND Extensive mammographic density is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer and makes the detection of cancer by mammography difficult, but the influence of density on riskExpand

Mammographic breast density as an intermediate phenotype for breast cancer.
The amount of radiologically dense breast-tissue appearing on a mammogram varies between women because of differences in the composition of breast tissue, and is referred to here as mammographicExpand

Postmenopausal hormone therapy: an Endocrine Society scientific statement.
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to provide a scholarly review of the published literature on menopausal hormonal therapy (MHT), make scientifically valid assessments of the available data, and grade theExpand

Mammographic density and breast cancer risk: current understanding and future prospects
Variations in percent mammographic density (PMD) reflect variations in the amounts of collagen and number of epithelial and non-epithelial cells in the breast. Extensive PMD is associated with aExpand

The association of breast mitogens with mammographic densities
Radiologically dense breast tissue (mammographic density) is strongly associated with risk of breast cancer, but the biological basis for this association is unknown. In this study we have examinedExpand

Dietary fat and breast cancer risk revisited: a meta-analysis of the published literature
Animal experiments and human ecological studies suggest that dietary fat intake is associated with a risk of breast cancer, but individual-based studies have given contradictory results. We haveExpand

Effects at two years of a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet on radiologic features of the breast: results from a randomized trial. Canadian Diet and Breast Cancer Prevention Study Group.
BACKGROUND The appearance of breast tissue on mammography varies according to its composition. Fat is radiolucent and appears dark on mammography, while stromal and epithelial tissue has greaterExpand
