|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer Breast Abnormalities||Procedure: Ultrasound Imaging with Contrast||Not Applicable|
The purpose of this study is to determine if performing ultrasound with an attachment made up of two transducers (rather than just a single transducer) will provide more information about the blood vessels in the breast than the current attachment.
The study will also examine the question of whether use of an ultrasound contrast agent will the scanner to see smaller blood vessels than are detected without the agent.

Experimental: Ultrasound Imaging
Ultrasound Imaging with Contrast
Procedure: Ultrasound Imaging with Contrast
An ultrasound contrast agent, Definity, will be administered started through the IV line already in use. The imaging will be performed to map vascular flow.
The breast will be scanned by a double ultrasound transducer system in a holder over the area of the breast to be biopsied. The machine will be set with different settings and the scan repeated, possibly multiple times.
