Hologic Breast Density Assessment Software Quantifies Fibroglandular Tissue


October 12, 2011

Until recently, consistent assessment of breast composition was hampered by widely differing technical factors and the subjectiveness of the reviewer. The Hologic Quantra volumetric assessment tool is a breakthrough technology that estimates volumes in the breast and calculates the volumetric fraction of fibroglandular tissue. The Quantra tool uses details of the X-ray imaging chain to quantify fibroglandular tissue in the breast. Quantra software aggregates volumetric measurements from each view in a study into a simple, concise assessment for each breast.
