Illustration of the quantitative estimation of breast density from a digitized image of a mammogram. The image of the breast is outlined, and the areas that exceed any certain threshold value of density are also outlined. Percent density is calculated as [(dense area%total area) x 100]. Dense tissue in this breast area of this mammogram accounts for 48% of its area.

Breast density patterns. A) BI-RADS I = fatty breast (<25% dense). B) BI-RADS II = scattered densities (25%–50% dense). C) BI-RADS III = heterogeneously dense (51%–75% dense). D) BI-RADS IV = extremely dense (>75% dense). BI-RADS = Breast Imaging Reporting Data System.

Figure 3. From: Prevention of Breast Cancer in Postmenopausal Women: Approaches to Estimating and Reducing Risk.

Forest plots of the risk of breast cancer from placebo-controlled trials of tamoxifen or raloxifene, with pooled estimates overall and for each treatment separately. A) All invasive breast cancer. B) Estrogen receptor–positive invasive breast cancer. The solid squares are centered on the point estimate from each study, and the horizontal line through each square represents the 95% CI for the study estimate. The size of each square represents the weight of the study in the meta-analysis. The center of each diamond represents the summary estimate of the effect size, and the horizontal tips represent the 95% CI. The solid vertical line corresponds to no effect, and the dashed vertical line corresponds to the summary estimate. CI = confidence interval.
