Breast Cancer Conservation Surgery: New Clinical Trial at Margaret West

Our Margaret West Comprehensive Breast Center is proud to partner with Perimeter Imaging AI to conduct a clinical trial for breast cancer surgery patients. 

We are excited to be the first site to enroll a patient in the Perimeter pivotal trial that is evaluating the use of Perimeter B-Series OCT imaging technology combined with artificial intelligence. There is a strong unmet medical need to provide breast cancer surgeons with specimen imaging tools to aid their decisions ‘real time’ in the operating room. Through this pivotal study, we can assess if the Perimeter B-Series with artificial intelligence demonstrates an improvement over the current standard of care – potentially setting a new standard for specimen imaging technology during breast conservation surgery.

Approximately 15% to 20% of women who undergo breast conservation surgery require reoperation if their surgeon fails to get clear margins. By combining optical coherence tomography with deep learning algorithms, this innovative technology could assist us, as surgeons, to better identify regions of interest on scanned samples, enabling ‘real-time’ decisions on margin status in the OR.

Margaret West High Risk Breast Clinic

At the Margaret West Comprehensive Breast Center, our physicians, staff and community outreach liaisons walk hand-in-hand with patients on their health care journey. As part of this commitment, it is our priority to ensure that you are equipped with the necessary resources and education regarding your general breast health, as well as information on breast cancer and the importance of early detection. In an effort to continue providing the highest quality care, we now offer a High Risk Breast Clinic for patients who may have an increased risk of developing cancer.

3D Mammography

Digital breast tomosynthesis (TOMO), also known as 3D mammography, is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool used to improve the early detection of breast cancer. Traditional digital mammography takes two-dimensional pictures of the breast and is still one of the most advanced tools available for detecting abnormalities. Rather than viewing the breast tissue in 2D images, our radiologists can now examine tissue one thin layer at a time. Fine details are much more visible and are less likely to be hidden by overlapping tissue.

Breast-Specific Genetic Counseling

To further our commitment to patients and their families here, we are now excited to offer breast-specific genetic counseling and testing! As a facet of our High Risk Breast Clinic, patients that have a familial history of breast or ovarian cancer can meet with our on-site High Risk provider to discuss their personal risks and perform genetic testing if necessary.
