Abstract : The purpose of this research is: (1) To assess the sensitivity and specificity of H MRS (ex vivo) in the detection of neoplasia in breast, based on altered cellular chemistry. (2) Correlate alterations to MRS detectable cellular chemistry associated with breast tumor development and progression with established clinicopathological criteria. (3) Ascertain MRS markers which correlate with known clinical, epidemiological and genetic risk factors to be used to identify women at-risk of developing breast cancer.
