In a publication in Journal of the National Cancer Institutet Judith Brand et al from MEB presents a study on the heritability of volumetric mammographic density and the association with breast cancer susceptibility loci. The results support the high heritability of mammographic density,  and also demonstrate that the shared genetic component with breast cancer is not restricted to dense tissues only.
