Both automated and clinical assessments of breast density are associated with breast cancer risk.
Diabetes treatments, such as diet or pills (eg, metformin), decrease mammographic density, whereas insulin may increase mammographic density.
Breast density assessments can vary for as many as 19% of women, which can lead to inconsistent information regarding the need for additional clinical screenings.
Not all women with dense breasts have a high enough breast cancer risk to justify additional imaging after a normal mammogram, according to a recent study.
Five-year risk plus breast density can best identify women at high risk for interval cancer.

Semiautomated computer-derived measurements are consistent with radiologist assessments, according to a study.
Automated breast density measurement is predictive of breast cancer risk in younger women, and that risk may be related to the rate at which breast density changes in some women as they age, according to research.
Mammographic density is associated with breast cancer among women younger than 50 years, according to a study.
A website has been developed to help navigate the new challenges posed by breast-density notification laws, according to a recent special report.
