  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ultrasound or Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) detects more cancers and to compare the types of cancers detected on ultrasound and DBT.

Condition Intervention
Breast Screening Procedure: breast ultrasound Procedure: DBT (Full field digital mammography + tomosynthesis)

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Clinical Utility of Whole Breast Screening Ultrasound in Patients Undergoing Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • estimate the cancer detection rates [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The detection rate of each imaging test is defined as the proportion of patients who are positive on that imaging test who truly have the disease compared to the total number of women screened. A positive imaging test is defined as a test with a recommendation for biopsy (BI-RADS 4 or 5).


Estimated Enrollment: 1500
Actual Study Start Date: June 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
women scheduled for breast screening

Each patient will have the following:

  • Screening whole breast ultrasound
  • DBT (Full field digital mammography + tomosynthesis views in the CC and MLO projections). The only change in patient management will be the addition of digital breast tomosynthesis views in patients scheduled for FFDM alone. DBT is currently clinically approved and being offered on a voluntary basis to patients scheduled for FFDM.
Procedure: breast ultrasound Procedure: DBT (Full field digital mammography + tomosynthesis)
