Description

Summary

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as contrast-enhanced MRI, may help find and diagnose ductal carcinoma in situ.

PURPOSE: This study is to develop and refine magnetic resonance (MR) imaging methods for pre-operative staging of ductal carcinoma in situ, a pre-invasive form of breast cancer, and atypical ductal hyperplasia, a risk factor for developing cancer.

Official Title

Contrast-enhanced MRI for the Characterization of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS)

Details

OBJECTIVES:

  • Compare the DCIS optimized MRI to the standard clinical MRI. Using a scale of 1-5 from poor to excellent, images will be assessed for conspicuity of DCIS and atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) lesions, agreement of disease extent with biopsy, and overall image quality (artifact level, uniformity of fat suppression, contrast to noise ratio and signal to noise ratio).
  • Subjects with ADH, a benign condition that can also show enhancement on MRI, will be enrolled to explore the utility of the DCIS optimized MRI for distinguishing DCIS and ADH.
