Previous studies have found that mammographic breast density is highly correlated with breast cancer risk. Therefore, mammographic breast density may be considered as an important risk factor in studies of breast cancer treatments. In this paper, we evaluated the accuracy of using mammograms for estimating breast density by analyzing the correlation between the percent mammographic dense area and the percent glandular tissue volume as estimated from MR images. A dataset of 67 cases having MR… CONTINUE READING
