DB-I promotes education about  breast density through national societies, professional bodies and academic institutions across Europe

DenseBreast-info.org (DB-I) announced that the European Society of Radiology (ESR) now links to DB-I website and educational materials as a resource for members about the screening and risk implications of dense breast tissue.

August 13, 2021 — DenseBreast-info.org (DB-I) announced that the European Society of Radiology (ESR) now links to DB-I website and educational materials as a resource for members about the screening and risk implications of dense breast tissue. The ESR, the largest radiological society in the world,  has over 122,000 members and is connected with 49 European national member societies.

The ESR is the latest in a growing number of national and international societies and professional organisations across Europe that provide links to share DenseBreast-info.org resources, including The Royal College of Radiologists, the Society of Radiographers (UK), ESR / Patient Advisory Group, the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS), the International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP), ecancer.org and leading research charity, Prevent Breast Cancer.

“The issue of the implications of dense breast tissue has become of major importance for medical professionals. I am therefore very pleased with this educational measure, which will greatly benefit ESR members.  In order to ensure that women across Europe receive appropriate breast care, it is crucial that breast imagers have access to a comprehensive resource such as this,” said Prof. Michael Fuchsjäger, Chairman of the European Society of Radiology.

“Since the launch of DB-I/Europe, discussions and research on the topic have increased and there is a significant need in Europe for medically-sourced educational information about dense tissue,” added Athina Vourtsis, MD, PhD, DenseBreast-info.org European Liaison.

“We are glad that ESR will join the growing list of healthcare providers and professional organisations that share  DB-I/Europe educational content with their members about the impact of breast density on screening,” said Cheryl Cruwys, DB-I’s European Education Coordinator.
