Kulsam is responsible for the management of the Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) Study in Younger Symptomatic Women (Chief Investigator: Prof Andy Evans). This is a multi-centre study which has recruited 446 patients from across the UK. The primary objective of the study is to determine whether DBT is more sensitive than standard digital mammography for the detection of malignancy in symptomatic women aged under 60 with clinical and/or ultrasound features suggestive of malignancy. This research will help to establish whether the newly developed DBT technology has a role in routine clinical practice.
