Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To further develop a new method of in vivo imaging of the breast using vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging.
  • To demonstrate and evaluate the capability of VA imaging in detecting microcalcifications and lesions inside the human breast.

OUTLINE: Participants undergo vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging of the breast using ultrasonography over 90 minutes. Participants may also undergo further imaging using clinical ultrasonography.
