Plans for CMIST Trial Announced
The American College of Radiology (ACR) recently announced plans for a clinical trial to determine if contrast enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) screening provides more accurate cancer detection compared to the combination of digital breast tomosynthesis and whole breast ultrasound in women with dense breasts. The Contrast Enhanced Mammography Imaging Screening (CMIST) Trial, planned to begin in spring 2020, will be managed by the ACR Center for Research and Innovation and will be supported by the ACR, Breast Cancer Research Foundation and GE Healthcare.
