BreastScreen WA and breast density

BreastScreen WA is aware of increased public interest around the topic of breast density.

BreastScreen WA has for many years notified women and their general practitioners, of a dense breast result if the reading radiologists are concerned that the individual client’s breast density has the potential to decrease the accuracy of the mammographic examination.

Please see the following links to the BreastScreen WA position statement about breast density for general practitioners and BreastScreen WA's information for women with dense breasts.

Please refer to the BreastScreen Australia position statement for more information.
