Brief description Mammographic density (MD), is a major risk factor for breast cancer. The nature of breast tissue underlying MD is not clear. The study will clarify the nature of breast tissue underlying MD as well as determining the breast MRI and ultrasound features that correlate with MD. These findings will enhance knowledge of breast cancer development, and should help to avoid mammography to screen young, high risk women and fulfil a priority objective of Cancer Australia
