Characterizing the association between breast density
and risk of tumor subtypes may enhance our understanding
of how breast cancer subtypes differ in etiology. The
goal of this study was to use 3D MR-based density method
to investigate the association of breast density with
the development of different subtypes of breast cancer.
In total 114 women diagnosed with unilateral breast
cancer were analyzed. A negative correlation between age
and percent breast density was noted, with older women
tended to have lower density. ER negative and triple
negative cancer had higher PD than other tumor subtypes,
but no statistical difference was identified.
