- The Effectiveness of an Innovative, Low-Cost Screening and Diagnostic Methodology [ Time Frame: Three (3) year interval ]This study will examine the effectiveness of an innovative, low-cost screening and diagnostic methodology used for combined early detection of breast and gynecological cancers in low resource regions where early cancer detection strategies are not in place and cancers currently are diagnosed at advanced stages with resultant high mortality.
- Effectiveness of CBE and Ultrasonography for Breast Cancer Detection [ Time Frame: Three (3) year interval ]This study will examine the effectiveness of Clinical Breast Examination combined with Ultrasonography for breast cancer screening and detection in low resource settings where X-ray mammography proves not feasible in terms of cost, technology, and staff.
