A computer model was used to simulate the health outcomes and costs of dual-modality screening strategies for women with BRCA gene mutations. The results indicate that screening with digital mammography and magnetic resonance imaging at alternating 6-month intervals starting at age 30 years provides life-expectancy gains and breast cancer mortality reduction, and is the least costly approach for implementing current screening guidelines in both BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers.
