Treatment of Breast Cancer

Study Description

A Pilot Study To Evaluate the Effectiveness of Pulsed Time-Domain Optical Spectroscopy for Monitoring the Responses in Neoadjuvant Treatments of Locally-Advanced Breast Cancer

This study will investigate optical tissue characteristics as a function of neoadjuvant breast cancer treatment. Our objective in this pilot study will be to identify diffuse optical spectroscopy parameters that change with treatment and that may correlate with pathological response. The ultimate goal is to use such parameters ultrasound as an early predictor of pathological partial or complete response in women with locally advanced breast cancer receiving treatment with neoadjuvant treatments such as chemotherapy or neoadjuvant combined modality chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
