Screening Research Study Open

to Participants in Western Pennsylvania


A trial evaluating screening ultrasound after tomosynthesis (3D mammography) is ongoing at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine/UPMC. Participants must be between 40-75 years of age, have heterogeneously dense or extremely dense breasts, have no symptoms of breast cancer, and no breast implants. The study is funded by the National Cancer Institute and the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and will recruit 6200 women. Participants will receive screening ultrasound each year for three years as part of the study provided 3D mammography is included as part of their usual breast screening.
