PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well MRI works in assessing tumor size in women with ductal carcinoma in situ.
- Assess the contribution of MRI in accurately determining tumor size in women with ductal breast carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
- Evaluate the sensitivity of MRI in detecting DCIS.
- Evaluate the contribution of mammography in accurately determining tumor size.
- Compare the contribution of MRI vs mammography in assessing tumor extension.
- Compare the contribution of MRI vs mammography in assessing dense breasts.
- Evaluate the morphology of DCIS by MRI.
- Evaluate the curve of dynamic MRI in assessing DCIS.
- Evaluate the impact of nuclear grade of DCIS by MRI.
- Evaluate the rate of revision surgery.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo clinical examination, mammography, ultrasound imaging, unilateral breast MRI, and tissue sampling.
Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as digital mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and PET scans, may help find breast cancer and find out how far the disease has spread. PURPOSE: This phase...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures, such as MRI and PET scans, may improve the ability to detect cancer in women who have a genetic risk for breast cancer. PURPOSE: Screening study of MRI and ...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as multifunctional magnetic resonance imaging, may help doctors learn the extent of disease and plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This clinical tria...
To investigate whether combined Digital breast tomosynthesis and Automated breast volume scanner (DBT-ABVS) are comparable to Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in staging breast cancer.
Preoperative breast magnetic resonance imaging (B-MRI) staging in newly diagnosed breast cancer increases detection of synchronous contralateral findings, but may result in false-positive outcomes. Th...
Breast lesion detection and characterization with contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging: Prospective randomized intraindividual comparison of gadoterate meglumine (0.15 mmol/kg) and gadobenate dimeglumine (0.075 mmol/kg) at 3T.
Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CE-MRI) of the breast is highly sensitive for breast cancer detection. Multichannel coils and 3T scanners can increase signal, spatial, and temporal resol...
The use of preoperative breast MRI remains controversial despite being the most sensitive technique for the detection of breast malignancies.
The MRI Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) lexicon recommends that a breast MRI protocol contain T -weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI sequences. The addition of diffusio...
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
