Mayo Clinic, Breast Density, Breast Cancer

The Mayo Clinic has found at molecular breast imaging  or MBI can detect 3 times the breast cancers in women who have dense breast patterns compared to mammograms. This is from a study they did.

Always find out what your breast density is and get a copy of your record that indicates this information.  As one gets older typically women lose breast density, and it is easier to see inside of your breasts. There are certain situations that cause your breasts to be more dense. I know I wanted to be in this study but my breast density had dropped over a period of 8 years, so I didn’t qualify.
