Phenotype Models for Breast Cancer Screening Project

This project is developing models that determine the most informative clinical risk factors and imaging features for estimating breast cancer risk. The models integrate demographic, genetic, EHR, and imaging data in order to quantify the value of different predictors and screening technologies, enabling selection of the next optimal screening tests based on breast cancer risk, benefits and harms.
