Published in the International Journal of Oncology, research led by the University of Melbourne has uncovered two new risk measurement methods based on mammography. When these measures are combined, they are more effective in stratifying women in terms of breast cancer risk than breast density and all known genetic risk factors.
Since the I Weat Zebra Stripes Dor My Grandma Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Survivor Warrior limited Shirt the late 1970s, scientists have known that women with thicker breasts, shown on a mammogram with more white or brighter areas, are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer. breast cancer and was missed on screening.
In partnership with the Victoria Cancer Council and BreastScreen Victoria, University of Melbourne researchers are the first to explore other ways to investigate breast cancer risk using a mammogram.
Using computer programs to analyze mammograms of a large number of women with and without breast cancer, they have come up with two new ways to extract risk information. Cirrocumulus is based on the brightest areas of the image and the Cirrus on its texture.
First, they used a semi-automatic computer method to measure density at normal and successively higher levels of brightness to produce Cirrocumulus. They then used artificial intelligence (AI) and high-speed computers to learn about new aspects of texture (not brightness) of mammograms that predict cancer risk. Breast letter and created Cirrus. To understand women’s varying degrees of breast cancer risk, these developments could be the most significant since the I Weat Zebra Stripes Dor My Grandma Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Survivor Warrior limited Shirt cancer gene, said lead researcher and Professor John Hopper of the University of Melbourne. Breast letters BRCA1 and BRCA2 were discovered 25 years ago.
He said the current breakthrough could not have happened without the special support his mammography research had received from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which began with the first round of funding. first more than 20 years ago. “Only about 55% of Australian women aged 50-74 are present for screening to find breast cancer early,” he said.
