The Gail Model is one of the models developed to quantify a woman's risk of developing breast cancer. The model incorporates a series of questions related to breast cancer risk factors. Oct 17, 2013 · Breast cancer screening programmes are based on various risk models to assess the risk of breast cancer in the general population. The aim of the present study is to predict the efficacy of the Gail model (GM) in the Indian population. We did a retrospective calculation of the Gail score from the Cited by: 8.
Our Breast Density Risk Model Explanation for Breast Cancer features details and live links to several commonly utilized breast cancer risk assessment models: Gail, Tyrer-Cuzick (IBIS), Penn II, and a link to a paper describing the Claus model[vi]. Jun 22, 2019 · The first part of the calculator uses the Gail model and is an emulation of the NCI's Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool, based on published risk statistics and methods gathered from peer-reviewed journals. The second part of the calculator is the additional risk modifier questions, which are also based on published relative risk statistics.
