The Women Informed to Screen Depending on Measures of Risk (WISDOM) study began on November 1. It is a project of the Athena Breast Health Network, founded in 2009 by Dr. Laura Esserman of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
Study participants will be placed into one of two screening arms: traditional annual screening and risk-based screening. Women in the risk-based group will be assessed using a combination of personal history, family history, breast density, and genetic testing, Sanford said.
Athena Breast Health Network is a group of cancer experts, healthcare providers, researchers, and patient advocates at five University of California medical centers and the Sanford Health system. WISDOM is supported by a grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
