This study is currently recruiting participants.

Verified June 2017 by Duke University
Sponsor:
Collaborator:
William Marsh Rice University
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Duke University
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00734838
First received: August 13, 2008
Last updated: June 15, 2017
Last verified: June 2017
  Purpose
The objective of the proposed research is to develop new diagnostic modalities based on optical spectroscopy (auto fluorescence, absorption, and scattering) for the diagnosis of breast cancer and test its performance as an adjunct to core needle biopsy. For the surgery part of the study, all patients scheduled to have a mastectomy or lumpectomy for the treatment of breast cancer will be asked if they would be willing to participate in this study. For the core needle biopsy part of the study, patients with a higher pre-probability of cancer (based on mammography) will be recruited to increase the number of patients with malignant lesions and enrolled in this investigation.
