Screening Clinical Trials for Breast Cancer
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for breast cancer 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.
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.

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.

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.
