The purpose of the study is to test an investigational technique for breast lump treatment called HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). This procedure requires no surgery or incision. The study includes the HIFU procedure, four follow up clinic visits (45 minutes each) with physical exam (at 7 days, 3, 6, and 12 months after the procedure), follow-up ultrasounds at 3, 6, and 12 months, and digital photography to assess the cosmetic appearance of the treated breast Compensation for study completion is up to $400 for finishing the study ($100 after each of the four required follow up visits). In addition, if you must travel more than 250 miles round trip to return to UVA for your follow up visits, you may receive reimbursement for travel expenses such as mileage, parking, and meals.
