Dense Breasts &
Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI)

breast scan

Up to half of all women in the world have dense breast tissue

Dense tissue AND cancer both look white on a mammogram, and therefore many cancers can be obstructed from view on mammogram images.

Mammogram

Mammograms detect less than half of all cancers in women with dense breast tissue.

This leaves cancer to grow and ultimately travel to other parts of the body (metastasize) in those women whose cancers go undetected. There is currently NO CURE for metastatic breast cancer . . . 40,000 women per year die of metastatic breast cancer.

 

Dense breast tissue alone is a high risk factor for breast cancer.

Having dense breast tissue is a risk factor for getting breast cancer, equivalent to having a family member with the disease.

 

Therefore, mammography screening is inadequate for half of the female population, who are naturally at higher risk.

Better breast cancer early detection is just around the corner . . .

A new technology called Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) has proven to detect 3-4 times more breast cancers at an early stage than standard mammography in women with dense breast tissue.  Click to see results. 

Mayo Clinic Study

What’s the next step necessary so MORE women with breast cancer become SURVIVORS?

Funding the Density MATTERS Study

Preliminary results are extremely promising!

Out of 500 women with dense breast tissue tested to-date,
4 cancers were found with MBI,
while 0 were found with 3D Mammography.

With more cancers detected early, MORE women with breast cancer  become SURVIVORS.
