The Mayo Mammography Health Study at Mayo Clinic is investigating how features on mammogram images, including breast density and patterns of breast density, are related to future breast cancer.
Dr. Vachon and her mammography study team are exploring breast density changes and the influence on breast cancer risk, including changes from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and lobular involution.
Mayo Mammography Health Study researchers lead a consortium investigating whether breast density is a risk factor for all types of breast cancer or only some types, including in situ cancer and invasive breast cancer.
Dr. Vachon's team is identifying genetic variations associated with breast density, which could provide clues to better understand the relationship between breast density and breast cancer.
The Mayo Mammography Health Study collaborates with both Mayo Clinic research experts and external research experts in mammography, radiology, internal medicine, cancer, epidemiology and biostatistics.
The Mayo Mammography Health Study receives funding for its research on breast cancer and mammographic breast density from the National Cancer Institute.
