Breast cancer screening research wins Science and Innovation Prize 2021

Breast cancer screening research wins Science and Innovation Prize 2021. The DENSE trial study shows that breast cancer in women with dense mammary gland tissue is better detectable with an MRI in addition to the breast cancer screening. ‘With this MRI, tumors are found earlier, are on average smaller and less often spread to the armpit lymph nodes,’ says researcher Carla van Gils. According to Jeroen Geurts, jury chairman of the Science and Innovation Prize 2021, the research is clinically relevant, innovative and a game changer in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. That is why the DENSE trial research has been chosen as the winner of the Science and Innovation Prize of the Federation of Medical Specialists.
