Learn about Breast Density

Radiology tech with patient 

On October 1, 2013, a Maryland State law went into effect requiring the inclusion of general information regarding breast density in your screening mammography report.

The breast imaging radiologists in the Johns Hopkins Breast Imaging section will provide the required general information but will also advise you of your breast density based on their interpretation of your imaging study. As always, you should discuss breast health with your personal physician.

Please use the information below to gain a better understanding of the concept of breast density. Our breast imaging radiologists will also be your resource for learning more about this important topic.
