Identification and Differentiation of Breast Masses by Vibro-Acoustography
- To study in vivo detection of breast masses by vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging.
- To evaluate the performance of VA imaging in differentiating between benign and
malignant breast masses identified as BI-RADS 4 or 5.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo clinical mammography of the breast, followed by
vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging using ultrasonography over 90 minutes. Patients may also
undergo further imaging using clinical ultrasonography.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Detection and differentiation of breast masses with an estimated specificity of ≥ 70% using vibro-acoustography (VA) imaging
5 to 10 minutes for Breast VA imaging
