DCE-MRI and DWI for Detection and Diagnosis of Breast Cancer (9049)
ACRIN 6702: A Multi-center Study Evaluating the Utility of Diffusion Weighted Imaging for Detection and Diagnosis of Breast Cancer
|Closed||Breast Cancer; Solid Tumors||N/A||
A type of magnetic resonance imaging called diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) will be tested to define cancerous from non-cancerous lesions in the breast.
Eligibility Criteria (must meet the following to participate in this study)
- Willing and able to provide written informed consent;
- 18 years of age or older;
- Successful completion of breast MR examination with DWI required by protocol;
- Undiagnosed breast lesion (BI-RADS 3, 4, or 5) identified on MRI. The BI-RADS assessment must refer to a focal finding within the breast (i.e. mass, non-mass, or focus) as opposed to diffuse processes (e.g. background parenchymal enhancement, skin thickening) or lesions outside the subcutaneous breast (e.g. axillary lymph nodes, focal skin lesions, osseous lesions, etc.).
Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)
- Participants with current or recent history (within 6 months prior to the MRI) of chemotherapy for cancer;
- Neoadjuvant chemotherapy between MRI and confirmation of lesion outcome (study lesions must be biopsied prior to undergoing any chemotherapy);
- Pregnant (if a female is of childbearing potential - defined as a pre-menopausal female capable of becoming pregnant - confirmation of pregnancy status per the site's standard of practice should be done prior to MRI);
- Unwilling or not suitable to undergo MRI or use the contrast agent gadolinium.
