Abstract:

The purpose of this research is 1 To assess the sensitivity and specificity of H MRS ex vivo in the detection of neoplasia in breast, based on altered cellular chemistry. 2 Correlate alterations to MRS detectable cellular chemistry associated with breast tumor development and progression with established clinicopathological criteria. 3 Ascertain MRS markers which correlate with known clinical, epidemiological and genetic risk factors to be used to identify women at-risk of developing breast cancer.
