We will try to minimise the negative aspects to mammographic screening by developing new, improved and automated measures of a woman’s risk (a) of having a breast tumour missed due to having dense breasts, and (b) of breast cancer itself. This will allow women attending mammographic screening at BreastScreen to be given, at the time of their screening, more appropriate management and screening advice to achieve better outcomes.
