The National Cancer Institute has awarded John M. Boone, a UC Davis medical physicist and professor of radiology, a $2.88 million grant to further develop and research computed tomography (CT) to detect breast cancer. Boone is a pioneer in breast CT, working with a team of scientists and physicians for more than 15 years to develop the technology. His team has built four breast CT scanners, each with successive improvements in spatial resolution.
The goal is to evaluate if breast CT better is a better screening method for detecting lesions that turn out to be malignant.
