|Sponsor||University of Michigan|
|Collaborator||National Institutes of Health (NIH)|
|Start date||April 2002|
|End date||December 2014|
|Trial size||260 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00721435, HUM00045519 (2002-0584)|
The study will evaluate and refine a breast screening and diagnosis device.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
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 determned later.
Female participants at least 25 years old.
- To participate in this research study you must be a female over the age of 25
- Have had a normal mammogram or are scheduled for a breast biopsy
- Have cysts or have been recommended to have a 6 month follow up mammogram after your biopsy.
- Under the age of 25
- Documented breast cancer
|Official title||Combined Digital X-ray and Ultrasound Technique for Improved Detection and Characterization of Breast Lesions|
|Principal investigator||Paul L Carson, PHD|
|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.|
