In the two-year trial, all consenting women screened for breast cancer in the Greater Manchester, East Cheshire, and East Lancashire regions will receive breast cancer risk information based on a risk assessment that includes mammographic density calculated by VolparaDensity, the company said. Run within the U.K.'s National Health Service (NHS) Breast Screening Program, PROCAS 2 is being led by Dr. Gareth Evans and run by the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust.
Evans also led the original PROCAS study, which investigated individual risk for breast cancer based on breast density, lifestyle, reproductive information, and family history, according to the vendor. Funding for PROCAS 2 is being provided by the National Institute for Health Research.
