Overview

The Mayo Mammography Health Study is a Mayo Clinic breast cancer research study whose goal is to identify features on mammograms to detect women at high risk of breast cancer.

Mayo Mammography Health Study researchers are studying mammogram images to find clues that will help clarify a woman's future risk of breast cancer. Researchers are also studying how certain treatments, such as hormone therapies, may cause changes seen on a mammogram that could be important for determining how beneficial treatment will be over the long term.

Mayo Clinic researchers will learn more about early detection of breast cancer, breast cancer risk and response to treatment by studying the thousands of women who enrolled in this large mammography study and by following them over time.
