Now, when you receive a mammogram screening with Washington Radiology, you’re eligible for a free assessment that determines your lifetime chances of developing breast cancer. 

Washington Radiology, your trusted partner in advancing medical imaging care for 75 years, is here to give you peace of mind and the insight on whether additional screenings or actions may be needed through your healthcare provider.

Breast cancer is currently the most diagnosed cancer in women across the U.S. But the good news, according to the American Cancer Society, is that breast cancer deaths are declining thanks to regular screenings, early detection and treatment. Knowing your level of risk is important to managing your health both today and tomorrow.

The Tyrer-Cuzick Breast Cancer Risk Assessment tells whether you are at average, intermediate or high risk of developing breast cancer in your lifetime. Complete a questionnaire on your personal health and family history, and you’ll receive a comprehensive, computer-calculated assessment. Results can then be discussed with your physician.

The Tyrer-Cuzick model is an international breast cancer study tool that considers your:

  • Age
  • Height and weight
  • Race/ethnicity
  • Breast density and breast health history
  • Family history of breast cancer (your genetic risk)
  • Age at the time of giving birth to your first child, if applicable 
  • Age of menopause, if applicable
  • Past chest radiation therapy
  • And other determinants

Tyrer-Cuzick is one of the most comprehensive and reliable tools for informing patients and their healthcare providers of potential breast cancer risks. This assessment model, recognized by physicians nationwide, has a long history in the healthcare space.
