Title Photoacoustic imaging of human breast
Description This study is being conducted to see how well a non-invasive imaging technique allows researchers to see blood inside the human body. The technique combines light and sound to create an image.  We would like to see how well this imaging technique can show breast tissue malignancy.

You will be asked to be in the study for one visit lasting about 30 minute.  You will complete an imaging procedure similar to a breast mammogram. However, we will use very gentle breast compression and the technique will involve only near infrared light and ultrasound. The study will be performed by one or two female Ph.D. students from University at Buffalo.

Participants will be compensated.
