Oeffinger's talk describes a 15-year NCI-supported research effort focused on secondary breast cancer, including estimating the magnitude of risk, identifying modifying factors, predicting absolute risk and integrating risk prediction modeling, assessing long-term outcomes, understanding the benefits and harms associated with different surveillance strategies, testing risk-reducing intervention, using imaging repositories to identify radiomic signatures of secondary breast cancer, and future directions. The audience is limited to researchers, physicians, trainees and students. Space is limited.
