Australian Mammographic Density Research Facility (AMDRF)
To realise the full potential of mammographic density research for improving the health and well being of Australian women and their families.
The existence of AMDRF, and in particular BreastScreen Australia, places Australian researchers in a strong position to take a lead in mammographic density research. Translation of mammographic density measurement to clinical practice has the potential to lower the morbidity of breast cancer, and lead to a better and more cost-effective utilization of mammography. AMDRF operates through collaboration with BreastScreen and researchers. Established in 2004, it has the capacity to retrieve and store mammographic images (digital and analogue), create digitised images of analogue films, and measure mammographic density. AMDRF is a state-of-the-art facility at the forefront of mammographic density research in Australia and internationally.
