Study Summary

This trial will compare two scans (CE-DBT & CE-MRI) to see which is better at finding breast lesions in patients.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for women aged 18 or older with suspected breast lesions (BIRADS 4+), who have had or will have a conventional breast MRI at UNC Hospitals within a three-month window around the research scan. Participants must be able to consent in writing and not be pregnant, as confirmed by tests or patient history.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study aims to compare radiologist confidence when evaluating known breast lesions using two imaging techniques: contrast enhanced digital breast tomosynthesis (CE-DBT) and contrast enhanced dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (CE-MRI).See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include allergic reactions to the iodinated contrast agent used in CE-DBT, such as skin rashes or more severe responses that could require medication like antihistamines or steroids.


Screening ~ 3 weeks
Treatment ~ Varies
Follow Up ~calculated once all imaging is complete [anticipated 1.5 years]
This trial's timeline: 3 weeks for screening, Varies for treatment, and calculated once all imaging is complete [anticipated 1.5 years] for reporting.
