DescriptionSeveral organizations recommend healthcare providers offer annual breast MRI to women with lifetime risk for breast cancer above 20%. In this webinar, Deborah O. Himes and Amanda Gammon will review U.S. breast cancer screening guidelines and risk assessment models. The presenters will provide step-by-step instructions for calculating lifetime risk using the Tyrer-Cuzic model. Additionally, they will present a clinical decision making model to help assess which should be referred for additional risk assessment and/or referral for genetic counseling.
