Study Design
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Name: Optical Coherence Tomography
Type: Device
Overall Status
This is a single-arm, prospective, study of an optical imaging device on approximately twenty (20) subjects undergoing lumpectomies at one study site. In vivo and ex vivo imaging will be performed on study subjects with results being compared to final pathology.
Detailed Description
This study is a single-center, prospective, two-part open label study of an optical imaging device on approximately twenty (20) subjects at one (1) study site. Patients scheduled to undergo a lumpectomy will be recruited by the clinical investigators at the investigational site in accordance with the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The study period per subject is the time it takes to assess the in vivo and ex vivo breast tissue samples using the study device during their lumpectomy.

All specimens will be marked with India ink and undergo standard post-operative histology, and digital histology images corresponding to the inked locations will be obtained. The images and the matched digitized post-operative histology images will then be randomized and read by a blinded, independent pathologist. Sensitivity and specificity will be calculated.
