The objective of this study is to determine if the diagnostic performance of a dedicated breast-specific positron emission mammography (PEM) system, is superior to that obtained with a conventional PET/CT scanner and capable of producing acceptable image quality at a low-radiation dose level.

The significance of this study is that it will be the first prospective trial to compare MBI, a relatively low-cost functional breast imaging technique, to DBT, the new standard anatomic breast cancer screening technique in women with dense breasts. This study is also the first to evaluate two consecutive annual MBI scans to assess change in advanced cancer presentation after introduction of a functional imaging technique. These data will inform individualized decisions on supplemental screening and determine if a functional technique that is relatively low in cost and complexity of interpretation can eliminate the reservoir of clinically important breast cancers that remain occult on anatomic techniques. This study will also provide exploratory data about the optimal frequency of repeat MBI.
Open for enrollment
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of molecular breast imaging as an accurate way to assess the response of breast cancer tumors to chemotherapy or hormone therapy that is newly supplemental to the standard treatment.
Closed for enrollment
The question we hope to address with the MMHS population is whether breast density (the amount of non-fatty tissue that is present on the mammogram) is influenced by genes.
