Limits of Breast Cancer Screening Today
Despite widespread use of mammography, the technology has significant limits with average sensitivity of just 70% and even lower levels among women with dense breast tissue, which make up the majority of women under the age of 50. Mammography is also a painful procedure for many women, reducing compliance among patients.
From a global perspective, outside of the US and Europe, mammograms remains outside of many healthcare baskets, due to high upfront investments hospitals must make to purchase the necessary equipment.
