Currently, the National Cancer Institute, U.S (...) . Preventative Health Services Task Force and the American Cancer Society all recommend screening at a younger age(those between 40-50). The task force, however, does recommend educating your patients about the potential risks/benefits regarding mammography at a younger age. Screening women older than 50 has been shown to reduce mortality from breast cancer by about 25%. Benefit in younger women has been previously suggested in multiple trials. In fact, a meta-analysis of the trials showed a 15% reduction

152. Diagnostic performance of digital versus film mammography for breast-cancer screening. (Abstract)

Diagnostic performance of digital versus film mammography for breast-cancer screening. Film mammography has limited sensitivity for the detection of breast cancer in women with radiographically dense breasts. We assessed whether the use of digital mammography would avoid some of these limitations.A total of 49,528 asymptomatic women presenting for screening mammography at 33 sites in the United States and Canada underwent both digital and film mammography. All relevant information was available (...) for 42,760 of these women (86.3 percent). Mammograms were interpreted independently by two radiologists. Breast-cancer status was ascertained on the basis of a breast biopsy done within 15 months after study entry or a follow-up mammogram obtained at least 10 months after study entry. Receiver-operating-characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to evaluate the results.In the entire population, the diagnostic accuracy of digital and film mammography was similar (difference between methods in the area under

159. Screening with magnetic resonance imaging and mammography of a UK population at high familial risk of breast cancer: a prospective multicentre cohort study (MARIBS). (Abstract)

Screening with magnetic resonance imaging and mammography of a UK population at high familial risk of breast cancer: a prospective multicentre cohort study (MARIBS). Women genetically predisposed to breast cancer often develop the disease at a young age when dense breast tissue reduces the sensitivity of X-ray mammography. Our aim was, therefore, to compare contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CE MRI) with mammography for screening.We did a prospective multicentre cohort study in 649 (...) women aged 35-49 years with a strong family history of breast cancer or a high probability of a BRCA1, BRCA2, or TP53 mutation. We recruited participants from 22 centres in the UK, and offered the women annual screening with CE MRI and mammography for 2-7 years.We diagnosed 35 cancers in the 649 women screened with both mammography and CE MRI (1881 screens): 19 by CE MRI only, six by mammography only, and eight by both, with two interval cases. Sensitivity was significantly higher for CE MRI (77
