Dual Energy Contrast Enhanced Digital Mammography for the Detection and Preoperative Staging of Breast Cancer

Inclusion Criteria:

- Women with newly diagnosed unilateral breast cancer proven through core biopsy or FNA
who are planned to have (preoperative) MRI within 30 days of DE CEDM to assess extent
of disease/multifocality. (All women will have bilateral digital mammography as per
standard of care.) The preoperative MRI will be based on the surgeon's

- Women too claustrophobic to undergo MRI.

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Outcome Measure:

To estimate additional measures of accuracy of DE CEDM and MRI, such as the predictive values and ROC curves where applicable, for detecting multifocal or multicentric disease in the ipsilateral breast.

Outcome Description:

Every attempt will be made to perform all imaging exams All examinations will be completed within 30 days of scheduled surgery

Outcome Time Frame:

within 3 weeks of each other and within 30 days of surgery
