Breast Cancer Screening Based on Individual Risk Factors and Comparing the Effectiveness of 3D to 2D Mammography

Tomosynthesis Mammographic Imaging Screening Trial (TMIST) Scientific Title

Purpose
To study if risk-based screening for breast cancer is as safe and effective as age-based screening and if (3D) mammography is better than (2D) mammography at finding early-stage tumors.
Who is this for?
Women, age 45 to 74, who have never been diagnosed with DCIS or breast cancer. You must not have had a screening mammogram within the last 11 months    Full eligibility criteria
