2D Silicon Transducer-Compression Plates for Breast Ultrasound

To assist in the developement of 3 dimensional breast ultrasound imaging and when possible
compare the ultrasound results with 3D mammography (digital tomosynthesis mammography)or
clinical mammography and ultrasound. Hopefully that this new, 3D ultrasound imaging can
provide important information not found on mammograms or routine breast ultrasound.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Healthy women OR

- Women with suspected benign masses who may/or may not be going to biopsy
