This is a prospective clinical trial that will examine if contrast-enhanced mammography substantially improves breast cancer detection compared to mammography with tomosynthesis, with minimal increase in false-positives, in women with a personal history of breast cancer.
The investigators expect to show in a prospective clinical trial that, in women with a personal history of breast cancer, contrast-enhanced mammography substantially improves breast cancer detection compared to mammography with tomosynthesis, with minimal increase in false positives. The investigators expect a substantial increase in node-negative invasive cancers in particular. Because DBT will be interpreted first by one reader, and CEM will be interpreted first, and independently, by a second reader, there will also be an assessment of performance of tomosynthesis alone or CEM alone in this population.

This study is being performed to find out if a new kind of breast imaging (called contrast-media enhanced breast CT or CE-BCT) can help doctors to see the small structures in breast tissue...
Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) breast MRI is highly sensitive for breast cancer and requires gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCA)s, which have potential safety concerns.
To compare the accuracy of contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) and MRI, including maximal intensity projection (MIP) images, for measuring the tumour size of breast cancer.
Use of mammography screening in the general population has been credited with improvements in the diagnosis of breast cancer. Yet, the proportion of women with invasive breast cancers who are diagnose...
About one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in life. Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women and if it is identified at an early stage by the ...
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
