Co-relating Mammographic Density, Breast cancer risk and a fully automated Volumetric Density Measurement (VolparaTM)

Bushra Wasim, Khalid M Khan, Ariane Chan, Kamran Hameed, Farah Habib


Breast cancer and Mammographic density have been directly related i.e. the greater the breast density the greater is the risk of developing breast cancer. Accuracy of reading mammograms is reader subjective. The Gold standard is Cumulus which is quantitative but still reader subjective. In the recent past more stress is on developing fully automated methods and volumetric assessment of mammographic densities which are more objective and quantitative. In this review a quick glance is given to various methods and their strengths.

Key Words:

Mammographic density, Volumetric assessment, Cumulus
