Algorithm tackles breast density

Dense breasts complicate the evaluation of suspicious lesions, and Fuji is testing an algorithm designed to help. The algorithm estimates breast tissue density based on the relative densities of the pectoralis muscle and the fat in its immediate vicinity. Automatically and consistently calculating breast densities could assist radiologists in identifying the appropriate next steps in the diagnostic process, such as ultrasound examinations or breast MR. Clinical tests indicate strong correlation between density categorizations calculated using this new method and those determined by unaided radiologists.
