The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate the potential clinical benefits of combining two new diagnostic tools to provide co-registered anatomical and functional information in the breast in patients with suspected breast cancer.
||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
||Pilot Study to Evaluate the Incremental Diagnostic Value of a Combined Molecular Breast Imaging / Breast Tomosynthesis Modality
| Study Start Date:
| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Positive MBI scan
Women who are previously enrolled in an MBI study that present with a positive MBI scan.
The purpose of this pilot study is to obtain preliminary data on a new way of imaging the breast that combines the benefits of a 3-D anatomical technique (Digital Tomosynthesis) with those of a functional imaging technique (Molecular Breast Imaging). Combining data from these 2 modalities would provide co-registered functional and anatomical information on the breast, in the same way that PET/CT does today in oncology. This should greatly facilitate the evaluation and biopsy of lesions seen on MBI but occult on conventional mammography.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||25 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
All patients will have had a molecular breast imaging study as part of their participation in one of the current research protocols evaluating this technology. A requirement for inclusion in this study is that patients will have had a digital mammography examination at Mayo Clinic within the past 30 days.
