Breast cancer imaging has been covered broadly in the lay press. Many questions have been raised in the past few years, which bring confusion to patients in terms of risks vs benefits. In addition, new research shows dense breasts to be a significant risk factor to developing breast cancer, warranting additional modalities. All of this requires the patient to have an understanding of the risks versus benefits so they can choose what's best for them. This project creates an information brochure for patients, using numbers to give patients objective perspective to inform their decision.
