The purpose of this study is to determine if breast imaging with ultrasound can be improved
by using 1) a ultrasound attachment with two transducers and 2) a contrast agent. These
changes might allow smaller blood vessels to be seen than under the way breast ultrasound is
The purpose of this study is to determine if performing ultrasound with an attachment made up
of two transducers (rather than just a single transducer) will provide more information about
the blood vessels in the breast than the current attachment.
The study will also examine the question of whether use of an ultrasound contrast agent will
the scanner to see smaller blood vessels than are detected without the agent.
- Female subjects who have breast masses and scheduled for core biopsy.
- Pregnant or lactating females.
- Females who have heart problems or sensitivity to contrast agents.
- Females who have had previous surgery for breast cancer.
