It’s Simple -- It’s Safe -- It’s Scientific
Wisdom is a five-year study that will test two different approaches to breast cancer screening – annual mammography vs. a personalized, risk-based approach. Our goal is to determine whether personalized screening is as safe, effective and accepted compared to annual screening. Our personalized screening approach will take multiple risk factors into consideration, including genetic markers, to determine how frequently someone should be screened by mammogram. Over time, we can learn which of these risk factors are most important and continue to adapt our screening recommendations accordingly. The Wisdom Study is slated to open in late summer 2016 at the initial sites, with expansion by early 2017 (NCT02620852). Together we can find a better way forward in breast cancer screening – share your Wisdom!
