BBN to trial stereoscopic digital mammo unit

Technology R&D firm BBN Technologies is set to launch a stereoscopic digital mammography (SDM) clinical trial.

SDM provides an in-depth 3D image of the breast, according to the Cambridge, MA-based vendor. The trial will take place at Emory University's Breast Imaging Center in Atlanta, and is expected to run through July 2007, BBN said.

Researchers will enroll 2,000 participants with an elevated risk for developing breast cancer in the trial. Participants will receive both a standard digital mammogram and a stereoscopic digital mammogram.
