Screening Patients for Breast Cancer with Advanced 3-D Breast Imaging

Research Question:
How well does advanced 3-D breast imaging (digital tomosynthesis mammography) work as a breast cancer screening technique?

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
This phase III trial is looking at an advanced 3-D imaging technique, digital tomosynthesis mammography, to screen patients for breast cancer. It uses a low-dose x-ray system and computer reconstructions to create three-dimensional images of the breasts. This method of screening may be superior to digital mammography for breast cancer screening and may help reduce the need for additional imaging or treatment. Eligibility: Women of childbearing potential (must not be known to be pregnant or lactating). Must be scheduled for, or have intent to schedule, a screening mammogram.
