TMIST Mammography Study (Breast Cancer Screening) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to compare two different screening mammography methods in pre- and post-menopausal women to understand whether one method is better than the other at finding life-threatening breast cancers.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Breast Cancer Detection

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Women ages 45-74

Age Group

What is Involved?

If you choose to join this study, you will get a random assignement (like the flip of a coin) to screening with Tomosynthesis Mammography (TM) or Digital Mammography (DM) .

The frequency and number of screening mammograms will vary with your menopausal status and whether you have breast cancer risk factors.

  • All premenopausal women will have annual screening
  • Postmenopausal women will have screening every 2 years unless they have any specific risk factors
  • All participants will be followed for 4.5 to 8 years
