The clinical breast examination is a critical exam for early detection of breast cancer. Assessment methods are needed to determine competency and skill mastery for experts and novices. The 3D sensor was developed to capture hand shear and normal forces conducted during an exam. Trials were conducted to record exploratory maneuvers used during the exam. The sensor system was found to be a reliable method for capturing exploratory maneuvers.
