Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To have a device that produces 3D/ultrasound imaging of the breast at the same time and in the same position. [ Time Frame: To be determined later. ]

Enrollment: 183
Study Start Date: April 2002
Study Completion Date: October 2016
Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3D Tomosynthesis & 3D Ultrasound for breast masses
Evaluate breast screening diagnostic device, 3D tomosynthesis. Assess utility of adding 3D ultrasound.
Procedure: 3D Tomosynthesis and ultrasound imaging
3D tomosynthesis & ultrasound imaging for scanning masses or healthy breast tissue
Experimental: 3D Tomosynthesis/ 3D Ultrasound for healthy subjects
Evaluate breast screening diagnostic device, 3D tomosynthesis. Assess utility of adding 3D ultrasound.
Procedure: 3D Tomosynthesis and ultrasound imaging
3D tomosynthesis & ultrasound imaging for scanning masses or healthy breast tissue

Detailed Description:
The device produces 3-D mammograms and ultrasound pictures of the breast at the same time and in the same position. This should help make sure that any area on a mammogram can be easily found in the ultrasound when using the new device. The 3-D mammograms should provide better visualization of the suspected lesion and improve diagnostic accuracy.
