The trial aims to aims to find out the impact of different ways of telling women with dense breast about how their breasts look on mammograms. Results will help inform future policy for breast screening programs in Australia and around the world.

The study recruitment period will run for approximately six months. Women due for breast screening during the study period will be eligible to participate. All participants will receive the usual information from BreastScreen Queensland. Some women will also receive information about their breast density.
