Women with increased mammographic density (MD) have an increased risk of developing breast cancer. The purpose of our study is to evaluate an experimental method to quantify MD using a program (compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7) which measures black areas as 0, white areas as 100 and grey scale areas with intermediate values between 0 and 100, depending on the “density” of the area. Digital screening mammograms were directly estimated with this method. Initial idea and steps of the program were based on a Mac utility used by our research team. (EN)
