The Optimal Resources for Breast Care (2024 Standards) specify that an NAPBC accredited site must notify and educate patients with increased density and risk.
Getting density right
Accurately classifying a patient BI-RADS B (non-dense) or C (dense) can affect access to imaging beyond mammography that may help find cancers. Nearly 75% of patients will be assessed in either the B or C density categories.
“The key improvement that Volpara brings to density reporting is an objective, reproducible density value that can be used in risk assessment models.”
– Professor Jack Cuzick, developer of TC8
Precise density matters
Researchers report using TC8 with VBD% changes medical management for 4.5% of a patient population.
