Role of 3D Tomography in Breast Cancer
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Correlation between mammography and breast CT on lesion detection
There are two specific aims of this pilot study. One specific aim is to determine if the lesions that are detected by mammography and referred for biopsy, are visible with breast CT. The other specific aim is to determine if there is a correlation between CT numbers and malignancy, in particular for soft tissue (solid masses) abnormalities and to determine if image processing techniques improve correlation between CT numbers and malignancy.
