The Association of Measured Breast Tissue Characteristics with Mammographic Density and Other Risk Factors for Breast Cancer
Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention
We have examined the relationships between the measured properties of breast tissue and mammographic density and other risk factors for breast cancer, using breast tissue obtained at forensic autopsy and not selected for the presence of abnormalities. Methods: We used randomly selected tissue blocks taken from breast tissue slices obtained by s.c. mastectomy at the time of forensic autopsy to measure histologic features using quantitative microscopy.
