Non-ionizing near-infrared radiation transillumination spectroscopy for breast tissue density and assessment of breast cancer risk.

Abstract

There is increasing attention to prevention as a means to reduce cancer incidence. Prevention interventions or therapies in turn rely on risk assessment programs to identify those women most likely to benefit from education and lifestyle changes. These programs are usually based either on interviews to identify ethnic, genetic, and lifestyle factors… (More)
