KWF has granted a sum of more than 730,000 euros to the research consortium of Mireille Broeders, including among others Radboud colleagues Jos van Dijck, Ritse Mann, Nico Karssemeijer, and Jonas Teuwen.

In this research project, they want to further refine breast cancer screening by making more information available from mammograms. By combining data on e.g. vascular features and the density of the breast tissue in a computer algorithm, they want to predict how aggressive a tumor is.

This research project can make an important contribution to reducing over- and under treatment of breast cancer patients.
