Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in females worldwide. At present, mammography is the best non-intrusive way for breast cancer detection. It is well established that mammographic density (MD) is an independent and robust factor for breast cancer risk assessment . Breast cancer risk assessment is useful in personalizing mammography screening and in helping patients make informed decision about the ways of reducing breast cancer risk. Currently, MD estimation is done manually or semiautomatically (Cumulus , for example). This leads to intra- and inter-reader variations in MD estimation, and hence limits its application in breast cancer risk assessment.
