Description: Conducted by the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium, the objective of this project is to identify effective breast cancer screening strategies for women of diverse levels of breast cancer risk to maximize screening benefits while minimizing potential harms.

To achieve our objective we will carry out three research projects:

  • Risk Assessment in Community Practice: Developing Better Models
  • Comparative Effectiveness of Imaging Strategies for Breast Cancer Screening in Community Practice
  • Community-based Utilization of Breast Imaging Technologies
