Clinical Trial Summary

This research study is evaluating whether the use of digital breast tomosynthesis and near-infrared tomographic optical breast imaging (DBT-TOBI) scans can predict the response of triple negative or HER2+ breast cancer to neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

The study radiologic scan involved in this study is digital breast tomosynthesis (also called 3 Dimensional mammogram) combined with near-infrared tomographic optical breast imaging, or DBT-TOBI.


Clinical Trial Description

This research study is a Pilot Study, which is the first time investigators are examining this study device for this indication.

The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved DBT-TOBI as a diagnostic scan for this disease.

The DBT-TOBI scan system is designed to deliver low power laser lights through a person's body tissue and collect data about the light that is transmitted through. In this study, the DBT-TOBI will be used to scan the breast. The data that can be collected through the scan is the total hemoglobin concentration and hemoglobin oxygen saturation. Hemoglobin is the protein found in red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen to the various tissues in the body. These two data types are thought to provide insight into the response of the breast cancer to neoadjuvant chemotherapy treatment response. The researchers are looking to find if these scans will help show changes in the hemoglobin levels, thus showing how the cancer is reacting to treatment. The study is focused on 2 types of breast cancer called triple negative breast cancer and Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). ;
