Clinical Trials

Thoughtful and robust clinical trials result in exceptional clinical care, and that’s the mission of the Marin Breast Health Trial Center. Our team there is studying the efficacy of the QTscan® through ongoing clinical trials. The scans are delivered in an environment designed around the comfort and peace of mind of the women who participate. The QTscan has been cleared by the FDA for use in breast imaging as an adjunct to mammography. At this time, it is not intended as a replacement for screening mammography.

Enrollment status: Trial completed and results expected 2018 

Study Goal: A prospective multi-center case collection study of breast imaging examinations from women with mammographically-detected lesion(s) to evaluate the non-inferiority of digital mammography and transmission ultrasound together compared to digital mammography and hand held ultrasound together in the evaluation of lesion(s) detected with diagnostic mammography.

Results Published in Academic Radiology | Enrollment status: n/a 

Study Goal: The purpose of this retrospective study is to evaluate and compare the diagnostic accuracy of QT breast imaging vs. hand held ultrasound as an adjunct to digital mammography to aid in distinguishing a cyst versus a solid lesion in the breast using historical QT images.

Enrollment status: This study is enrolling participants by invitation only. 

Study Goal: To evaluate the detection and characterization of breast findings of QT Ultrasound and comparing to hand held ultrasound and/or digital mammography (with and without tomosynthesis) and to fulfill NIH Grant RO1CA138536 from the National Cancer Institute.
