Project's details

Project title BCSC Advanced Cancer Risk Calculator mobile app
Background The Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium previously developed a 5-year risk calculator for invasive breast cancer, which is available on the web ( and iPhone/iPad. See pdf for screen-shots. This risk calculator has been used more than 300,000 times. Most recently, we developed a risk prediction model to estimate the risk of being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer despite routine screening with mammography. We would like to use the model to identify women at risk of a mammography screening failure, who should be screened more intensely for early cancer diagnosis. We would like to create a similar web-based tool and mobile app for this risk calculator.
Description The risk calculator would have a screen for entry of a woman's risk factors. Based on the entry, it would use a look-up table to determine her advanced cancer risk.
Deliverable Mobile app for iPhone/iPad for advanced cancer risk calculator. Possibly also the web-based tool, if both are doable.
Skill set desirable iPhone/iPad app development. If the student also assists with the web-interface, then those skills are also needed.
