Breast Cancer with Mammographic Density Risk Assessment SAS Macro

This software is a SAS macro that projects absolute invasive breast cancer risk for white women in the batch mode based on measurements of mammographic density following the methods of Chen et al. (JNCI 2006;98:1215-1226).

Users can enter risk factor data (mammographic density, age at first live birth, number of affected sisters or mother, weight and number of previous benign breast biopsies) and projection interval ages for a group of women, and the macro will return the corresponding absolute risk projections. This program may be useful for research purposes when one needs risk projections for an entire study population.
