Combined Imaging and Blood Biomarkers for Breast Cancer Diagnosis
In this study, investigators are analyzing computer measurements from mammograms and combining them with measurements from blood samples to make improved diagnostic decisions. The goal is to eliminate biopsy procedures when they are not required for some women.
The primary objectives of this project are to: (1) construct a combined repository with mammographic images and biospecimens as an EDRN resource; and (2) perform preliminary analyses to evaluate the possibility that blood analytes combined with automated image measurements can provide adequate performance to eliminate a portion of the negative biopsies while maintaining high sensitivity in a breast screening population restricted to those women designated as a BI-RADS 4.
