Helping You Understand Risk

This visual helps you picture the actual size of the risks you will be seeing in the Patient Risk Comparison Tools. Each dot in the large box represents one woman. There are 100,000 women in this box. The circled area in the box shows how many women are likely to experience a certain risk.

In this visual, for example, fewer than 4 out of 100,000 women are at risk for stroke.

Large figures represent one woman. Small figures represent less than one woman.

Consider this visual as you look at the information in the Patient Risk Comparison Tools.
