RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as vibro-acoustography imaging, may be an effective method of finding microcalcifications and lesions in the breast.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well vibro-acoustography imaging works in finding breast microcalcifications and lesions in women.
|Condition or disease|
- To further develop a new method of in vivo imaging of the breast using vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging.
- To demonstrate and evaluate the capability of VA imaging in detecting microcalcifications and lesions inside the human breast.
OUTLINE: Participants undergo vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging of the breast using ultrasonography over 90 minutes. Participants may also undergo further imaging using clinical ultrasonography.
