This is important as women who are on the higher end of the breast density scale
carry a higher risk for breast cancer some time during their lifetime.
At the opposite end of the density scale
, GE Plastics will display new grades of its highly filled "Heavy" Valox PBT (PT, Dec.
Because of these issues, radiologists classify breast density using a four-level density scale
established by the American College of Radiology as part of its Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) standard.
Take advantage of the "bumping clause." All of the 100 or so commodities that are subject to the standard multiple scale of ratings, which is based on density, and the 25 commodities that are subject to the expanded density scale
are also subject to Item (Rule) 171 of the NMFC, known as the "Bumping Clause." Under this rule, if your actual density is close to the next-heavier density group, you may "bump" your shipment up to the next group and qualify for that group's rate.
Incidentally, a density scale
at the air-charging station provides continuous closed-loop density control.
According to my count, there currently are more than 100 commodities in the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) that are subject to the National Classification Committee's standard density scale
. That scale includes nine different density groups and nine different classification ratings, or classes.

Many classification descriptions have five or fewer density groups, and some are not in conformity with the density groups found in the standard or broader density scales
. One example is "Cones, Marshmallow-Cream Filled" under NMFC Item 40020.
