The aim of this thesis was to document the distribution of mammographic parenchymal patterns (MPPs) for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women attending BreastScreen New South Wales North Coast (BSNSWNC); to profile breast cancer risk as it relates to breast density; and to explore the correlations among MPPs, age and breast length as described by the posterior nipple line (PNL). The PNL criterion is defined as a reference line drawn from the nipple at right angles to the anterior aspect of the pectoral muscle contour or to the back of the image whichever comes first (Spuur et al. 2011).
