How much earlier did MRI detect breast cancer than mammography in the DENSE trial?

The current analysis found MRI screening in the DENSE trial detected invasive breast cancers about 6 years earlier than mammography. The calculation is based on first and second round invasive cancer detection rates. The 6 years is also consistent with the trial’s high false positive rate in the second round that used “prior” first round exams to estimate lesion growth over the 2 years between rounds. The “how much earlier” measure provides an additional means for comparing the relative performance of breast cancer screening modalities.
