Breast Density Issue Addressed

Numerous RSNA 2013 sessions take on the hot topic of breast density and its impact on the effectiveness of mammograms.

Breast density has made headlines as many U.S. states have passed or are considering laws that require written notification of women, after screening mammography, of their tissue density and the need discuss screening options with their primary care physicians. A federal breast density notification law is pending, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is also considering modifications to national mammography reporting guidelines to include breast density notification. See these RSNA 2013 sessions for a variety of perspectives on the breast density topic:
