Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate whether breast cancer with a higher angiogenesis activity is associated with a unfavorable outcome. [ Time Frame: 5 years from completion of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate whether angiogenesis of breast cancer is associated wit lymph node status [ Time Frame: at completion of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 700
Study Start Date: November 2000
Study Completion Date: July 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: magnetic resonance imaging
    MRI contrast agent, 0.1 mmol/kg

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 90 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with a breast mass highly suspicious for malignancy from clinical, mammographic or sonographic examination.
  • The study has been explained to the patient when she is scheduled for surgery.
  • Healthy normal volunteers for imaging protocol optimization.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnancy
  • Patients with implanted surgical clips (hemostatic clips) or other ferromagnetic material,
  • Patients engaged in occupations or activities which may cause accidental lodging of ferromagnetic materials, or who may have imbedded metal fragments from military activities,
  • Patients with metallic implants, because they may cause artifacts in diagnostic images due to magnetic field distortion,
  • Patients with implanted prosthetic heart valves,
  • Patients with pacemakers, neuro-stimulation devices,
  • A breast mass with features of benign tumor
  • The patients unwilling to participate in the study or fail to sign the consent form
