Project Summary:

The work on this NIH R01 grant aims to develop and evaluate a set of sensor-enabled breast models that can be used to quantify clinical breast examination skills. The next step is to validate a set of sensor-enabled breast models as reliable measurement tools that can be used to ensure minimum performance standards for the clinical breast examination. Further evaluation is needed to gain a better understanding of the complex relationship between the breast exam technique and accuracy.
