Raine Study Gen 0 and Gen 1 Breast Density Study
In 2018 we started inviting all biological mothers and maternal and paternal grandmothers of the Raine Study (ie Generation 1 and Generation 0) to participate in a follow up looking at Breast Density.
Transillumination Breast Spectroscopy (TiBS) is a new method of measuring breast density using visible and near infrared light, and is safe and easy to use in women of all ages.
TiBS can determine how much fatty tissue and how much dense tissue there is in breasts. With breast density a strong risk factor for breast cancer in women over 40 years of age, it is hoped that through this follow-up TiBS could become a less invasive measure than mammographic screening.
You will be required to attend a 60-90 minute appointment at Raine house to undertake a TiBS scan, blood pressure, height and weight measures and fill out a questionnaire. Some women will also have a Breast DXA.
Whilst we are initially hoping to get mothers and grandmothers of our female Gen2 participants in to begin with, we would still love to hear from you if you have a male Raine Study Gen2 participant.
Note, we can also undertake home visits for mums or grandmothers who cannot make it into Raine house for their scan.
