Welcome to the Bedrosian Laboratory. Our researchers focus on developing risk profiles for breast cancer and novel approaches to primary prevention of the disease.
Quantitative Radiomics Analysis for Assessment of Breast Cancer Risk
The annual mammogram remains the mainstay for early detection of breast cancer. Although changes to the standard annual schedule coincide with individual risk, so-called low-risk women represent the majority of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
Our researchers seek to overcome the limitations in this risk assessment tool by implementing density and texture analysis of the mammographic image. This method provides a novel approach to risk assessment.
