To evaluate the association between mammographic density and breast cancer risk, a simple, observer-assisted technique called interactive thresholding was developed that allows reliable quantitative assessment of mammographic density with use of a computer workstation. Use of this technique helps confirm that mammographic density is one of the strongest risk factors for breast cancer and is present in a large proportion of breast cancer cases. The strong relationship between mammographic… CONTINUE READING
