Novel Scanners for Breast Imaging
Williams Mark B.,
UVa Radiology Research is seeking female volunteers with an abnormal mammography finding for whom a breast biopsy has been recommended. This investigational study will test the ability of a newly developed breast imaging system to detect and characterize breast abnormalities. Unlike standard 2-dimensional mammography, images from the new system are 3-dimensional and provide functional as well as structural information. Thus they may be better able to predict whether or not a detected abnormality is cancerous. Eligible participants should have had a mammogram within the past 30 days, be recommended for biopsy, and must not be pregnant. All imaging will be performed at no cost to participants. Participants will be compensated $100 for their time. . The study can be completed in one visit lasting approximately two hours. This project is approved by the University of Virginia Institutional Review Board - Health Sciences Research (HIC #8825). For more information contact Principal Investigator: Mark B.
