Two Dimensional (2D) Silicon Transducer-Compression Plates for Breast Ultrasound
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||breast tumor, breast cysts|
|Treatments||experimental 3d breast ultrasound imaging, experimental photoacoustic imaging|
|Sponsor||University of Michigan|
|Collaborator||National Institutes of Health (NIH)|
|Start date||March 2009|
|End date||February 2015|
|Trial size||21 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00859261, 2R01CA091713, GE Global Research, HUM 15464, R01CA115267|
The study purpose is to help in the developement of 3 dimensional breast ultrasound imaging.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
|Masking||single blind (outcomes assessor)|
To prove the significance/capability of 3D Ultrasound imaging in comparison to current mammographic imaging.
time frame: 1 year
Female participants from 30 years up to 80 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Healthy women OR - Women with suspected benign masses who may/or may not be going to biopsy - Women with cysts where no biopsy is recommended Exclusion Criteria: - Women who are pregnant - Women with breast implants - Prisoners
|Official title||2D Silicon Transducer-Compression Plates for Breast Ultrasound|
|Principal investigator||Paul Carson, Ph.D.|
|Description||To assist in the developement of 3 dimensional breast ultrasound imaging and when possible compare the ultrasound results with 3D mammography (digital tomosynthesis mammography)or clinical mammography and ultrasound. Hopefully that this new, 3D ultrasound imaging can provide important information not found on mammograms or routine breast ultrasound.|
