Paper Abstract

Breast density is a major risk factor for developing breast cancer. Non-invasive assessment of breast density was performed by means of time-resolved 7-wavelength (635-1060 nm) optical mammography. Good correlation was achieved between mammographic density and optically derived indexes in a clinical study that is presently ongoing and that has involved 63 subjects up to now.
