Brief Summary:
This Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) ADVANCE study is a large, observational pragmatic comparative effectiveness research study using high-quality, prospectively collected data from BCSC registries to generate evidence on how breast density should be integrated into decision making around breast cancer screening and preoperative diagnostic work-up. We will augment existing BCSC registry infrastructure with additional prospective data collection and collection of patient reported outcomes (PROs), CISNET modeling of long-term screening outcomes, and qualitative data from focus groups with women represented in two aims.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Breast Cancer Other: Screening digital mammography Other: Screening digital breast tomosynthesis Other: Screening breast magnetic resonance imaging Other: Diagnostic mammography Other: Pre-operative breast magnetic resonance imaging

Detailed Description:

Aim 1: Compare the effectiveness of breast cancer screening using digital mammography alone versus digital mammography plus supplemental screening (digital breast tomosynthesis or MRI) by extent of breast density.

Sub aim 1: Evaluate whether the performance of tomosynthesis improves with years of experience, and whether any "learning curve" depends on radiologist specialty (i.e., breast imaging specialist vs. general radiologist).

Aim 2: Compare the effectiveness of preoperative MRI versus no MRI by extent of breast density among women with an initial, pathologically confirmed diagnosis of DCIS or invasive breast cancer.

Covid-19 Enhancement Aim and Hypotheses:

Develop patient-focused messaging content through focus groups that radiology facilities can use when scheduling appointments to inform women of the safety to schedule or postpone breast screening or diagnostic services.

Study Population
This study will include women age 40-79 undergoing screening mammography (Aim 1) and women age ≥18 with a first breast cancer diagnosis (Aim 2). We will include women in the BCSC cohort with mammography from 2005-2017. BCSC participants are identified from seven BCSC breast imaging registries. The BCSC prospectively collects data during routine clinical practice through voluntary partnerships with radiology facilities. Women enter the BCSC cohort when they receive a breast-imaging exam at a participating facility.
