ASSURE – PERSONALISED BREAST CANCER SCREENING

Project reference: FP7- Health – 2012 – Innovation  1 – 306088
TOTAL BUDGET: 5.357.154 €
Duration: 01/12/2012- 30/11/2015
UdG PROJECT COORDINATOR:  Dr. Robert Martí

Currently, breast screening is almost exclusively performed with mammography. However, for women with dense breasts the sensitivity of mammography for detecting breast cancer is low. The aim of ASSURE is to develop methods to personalise breast cancer screening, based on risk and breast density markers.

New screening methods using MRI and automated breast ultrasound imaging will be developed. Personalised screening will minimize the risk of a particular patient to have a cancer missed at an early stage, resulting in decreased mortality and increased quality of life due to less radical treatment options.
