Vibro-Acoustography Imaging in Diagnosing Breast Masses in Women With a Breast Mass or Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as vibro-acoustography imaging, may be an effective method of diagnosing breast cancer.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well vibro-acoustography imaging works in diagnosing breast masses in women with a breast mass or breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
|Official Title:||Identification and Differentiation of Breast Masses by Vibro-Acoustography|
- Detection and differentiation of breast masses with an estimated specificity of ≥ 70% using vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging [ Time Frame: 25 minutes for Breast VA imaging ]
|Study Start Date:||March 2006|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|Experimental: breast imaging study||
Other: breast imaging study
1. A set of vibro-acoustography (VA) scans will be taken of the breast by an experimental vibro-acoustography device that uses ultrasound for imaging.
2- An ultrasound scan (sonography) of the breast using a clinical ultrasound machine may be taken during the procedure.
- To study in vivo detection of breast masses by vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging.
- To evaluate the performance of VA imaging in differentiating between benign and malignant breast masses identified as BI-RADS 4 or 5.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo clinical mammography of the breast, followed by vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging using ultrasonography over 90 minutes. Patients may also undergo further imaging using clinical ultrasonography.
