Screening/Risk Assessment Issues

 

       Institute of Medicine report questioning Mammography <50

      Mammography clearly saves lives after 50

       6% of breast cancers occur prior to age 40

       The most common cause of death for women 25-55 years old is breast cancer

       Breast cancer accounts for 25% of cancers in women

       Women often overestimate their risk

       ‘40 & Female’ is no longer acceptable for risk stratification

       Resources need to be used appropriately

      Mammography

      MRI

      BSGI/Molecular imaging
