Evaluating the accuracy of the MEprobe for tumour margins

Early Breast Cancer clinical trials for ER+

Updated: June 30, 2020

The purpose of this study is to see if a handheld imaging device (MEprobe) can accurately detect the microscopic presence of cancer in breast surgery patients.

The purpose of this study is to see if a handheld imaging device (MEprobe) can accurately detect the microscopic presence of cancer in breast surgery patients.

Who is it for?

You may be eligible for this study if you are female, aged 18 or over and have been diagnosed with an invasive or localized breast cancer.

Study details

All participants in this study will have a surgical probe take images of the breast tissue during their breast surgery. Your breast surgeon will also send the breast tissue removed during surgery to pathology for routine laboratory testing to determine the characteristics of the breast cancer (including the size of the cancer as well as diagnostic factors such as tumour margins and hormone receptor status). The images from the device will be assessed by a reading centre following the procedure, to ascertain the accuracy of the probe acquired images. The images from the device will not be used to make any treatment decisions.

It is hoped this research will demonstrate that surgical imaging incorporated into the MEprobe is capable of creating high quality images that can be used during breast surgery to identify residual breast cancer and guide future protocols using this device.
