  Purpose

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as contrast-enhanced MRI, may help find and diagnose ductal carcinoma in situ.

PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying contrast-enhanced MRI in women with ductal breast carcinoma in situ and in healthy volunteers.


Condition Intervention
Breast Cancer
Procedure: contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)-optimized MRI with standard clinical MRI, in terms of conspicuity of DCIS lesion, agreement of disease extent with biopsy, and overall image quality [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Comparison of two DCIS-optimized MRIs for variability in enhancement levels for DCIS, in terms of conspicuity of DCIS lesion, agreement of disease extent with biopsy, and overall image quality [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of the menstrual cycle on the variability of background enhancement levels in normal stromal tissue as measured by the level of signal-enhancement-ratio [ Time Frame: 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: October 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To compare ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)-optimized MRI with standard clinical MRI, in terms of conspicuity of DCIS lesion, agreement of disease extent with biopsy, and overall image quality (i.e., artifact level, uniformity of fat suppression, contrast to noise ratio and signal to noise ratio), in women with DCIS of the breast.
  • To compare two DCIS-optimized MRIs for variability in enhancement levels for DCIS.
  • To examine the effect of the menstrual cycle on the variability of background enhancement levels in healthy volunteers.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.

  • Arm I: Patients undergo standard clinical contrast-enhanced MRI over approximately 30-45 minutes. No more than 3 days later, patients undergo ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)-optimized contrast-enhanced MRI.
  • Arm II: Patients undergo DCIS-optimized contrast-enhanced MRI over approximately 30-45 minutes. No more than 3 days later, patients undergo a second DCIS-optimized contrast-enhanced MRI.

Healthy volunteers undergo DCIS-optimized contrast-enhanced MRI as in arm II.
