The PowerLook Density Assessment algorithm uses an innovative technique that analyzes the structure, texture, and dispersion of the fibroglandular tissue. The breast density measurement is aligned with the new BI-RADS standard of identifying dense breast tissue in the breast that could be masking cancer. The masking risk is correlated to both the amount and distribution of fibroglandular tissue. In the diagram, the focally dense structure in Breast 2 is more likely to hide a cancerous lesion by reducing the ability to visualize details and fine structures that could be a sign of a malignant abnormality. In this example, dispersion, in combination with percent breast density, best depicts results consistent with an expert radiologist’s interpretation of breast density.
