BCT 2001

Recruiting
Updated: December 7, 2020

This observational study will see if a breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of women recently diagnosed with breast cancer impacts on their treatment planning and cancer outcomes.

This study aims to find out if having a breast MRI after being diagnosed with breast cancer might change plans for treating the breast cancer and how this might affect patient outcomes. It is hoped that this research will lead to the introduction of MRI as a routine method for diagnosis and informing treatment planning for women diagnosed with breast cancer in the future.

Who is it for?

This study may be suitable if you are 18 years or older, have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and your medical team has suggested that having a breast MRI will help plan your treatment.

Study details

Participants will not need any extra or different procedures or treatments over and above the normal care which has been offered to them by their treatment team. The research team will:

  • Collect information to be used in the study about participants' cancer, imaging and other tests, and their treatment.
  • Access clinical information collected during participants' appointments with their doctor about their current cancer care and follow up.
  • Access participants' clinical data from other health services used or attended as part of their cancer care (e.g. radiology or surgery).
  • This information will be collected for up to two years after participant registration to the study.

Participants will also be asked to complete some questionnaires to help the researchers understand how the decisions about their treatment based on having an MRI have impacted on them and their lives:

  • At the start of the study (before MRI): Their preference for surgery/treatment, how much uncertainty they have about making decisions, and their general wellbeing (approximately 10 minutes).
  • After MRI: Their preference for surgery/treatment, how much uncertainty they have about making decisions, their general well-being, and the impact of the MRI on their confidence in their treatment decision (approximately five minutes).
  • After initial treatment: Their general well-being, impact of MRI on confidence in decision (approximately five minutes).
  • Twelve months after registration: Their general well-being, the impact of the MRI on their confidence in their treatment decision and their satisfaction about their decision (approximately 10 minutes).
