Development and validation of reliable methods for early detection , safe / improved diagnosis and individual treatment of breast cancer

With its seven sub-projects, the Leading Edge Cluster's "Integrated Breast Care" project covers most of the research spectrum in the field of breast cancer diagnostics. The state-of-the art in breast cancer diagnostics is currently being advanced in the field of in-vitro diagnostics, MR, MR PET, tomosynthesis and ultrasound scans as well as in the field of CAD. A study has been initiated within the framework of this project in which the patient has the opportunity of benefiting from all these diagnostic procedures. As far as we aware, these are the only projects and studies of their kind anywhere in the world and they possess enormous potential for research and clinical diagnostics.
