Optimising and Personalising Breast Screening using Analytics and Cancer Risk

Breast screening requires reading vast numbers of images, where only a small proportion contain the subtlest signs of cancer. This talk begins discussing how analytics tools can ensure only images of the highest quality reach the reading room, maximising the radiologist’s ability to identify lesions. We then turn to those breasts where dense tissue limits mammographic sensitivity, or those at high risk, and how to personalise screening to counteract this.
