Screening Clinical Trials for Breast Neoplasm

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for breast neoplasm screening. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-8 of 8
  • Online Genetics Educational Video with or without Pre- and / or Post-Telephone Genetics Counseling in Assessing Cancer-Risk Distress in Patients with Triple Negative Breast Cancer

    This randomized clinical trial studies how well online genetics educational video with or without pre- and / or post-telephone genetics counseling works in assessing cancer-risk distress in patients with triple negative breast cancer. Online genetic education and telephone genetic counseling may help the doctors learn the stress a person feels about their risk of cancer.

  • Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography in Predicting Breast Cancer in Participants with Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia

    This pilot trial studies how well contrast enhanced spectral mammography works in predicting breast cancer in participants with atypical ductal hyperplasia. Contrast enhanced mammography is a type of mammogram that uses contrast material (dye or other substance) combined with the mammogram to highlight areas that might be breast cancer and that could be missed on the mammogram alone. Diagnostic procedures, such as contrast enhanced spectral mammography, may help prevent unnecessary surgery in many participants with the diagnosis of atypical ductal hyperplasia.

  • Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Detecting Breast Cancer

    This trial studies how well contrast enhanced spectral mammography and magnetic resonance imaging work in detecting breast cancer. Diagnostic procedures, such as contrast enhanced spectral mammography and magnetic resonance imaging, may help find and diagnose breast cancer. Comparing results of diagnostic procedures done before biopsy may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.

  • SBMRI in Screening Patients at High Risk for Breast Cancer

    This pilot phase 0 trial studies the use of short breast magnetic resonance imaging (SBMRI) in screening patients at high risk for breast cancer. SBMRI may help doctors find breast cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat.
    Location: M D Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas

  • Diffuse Optical Spectroscopic Imaging in Screening and Measuring Tumor Dynamics and Response in Patients With Breast Cancer

    This pilot clinical trial studies diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging in screening and measuring tumor dynamics and response in patients with breast cancer. Diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging may help doctors find breast cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat.

  • A Evaluation of 3D Functional MIRA System in Women With Mammographically Dense Breasts

    The purpose of this image acquisition study is to compare, in a Reader Study, the RI8 system used in conjunction with a conventional mammography to mammography alone, and to determine whether the addition of supplementary RI8 result will improve ROC area under the curve. The study is prospective, multi-center, sequential, control trial with the woman serving as her own control. Women determined to have heterogeneously or extremely dense breast based on her previous mammogram and are undergoing routine screening mammography at one of the clinical sites assigned for this study will be eligible to join the study.

  • Improving Surgical / Medical Oncology Collaboration for Breast Cancer Treatment Planning: Pilot Testing the Impact of Continuing Education and Patient Care Planning

    This study will explore provider's screening and management practices for eligibility for neoadjuvant therapy from baseline to following the project intervention (use of a novel existing technology, the Carevive Care Planning System at the point of care plus provider continuing medical education.

  • Quantitative Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Finding Heart Complications in Patients with Breast Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy

    This research trial studies quantitative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in finding heart complications in patients with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy. One of the side effects in patients receiving chemotherapy is heart complications in which the heart muscle is weakened and no longer able to pump sufficient amounts of blood throughout the body, which can lead to shortness of breath, swollen ankles and feet, lack of energy, and a reduced capacity to carry out day-to-day activities. Identifying early signs of such heart complications using cardiac magnetic resonance may allow preventative treatment options to be made available in future.
