"Our research will help providers and patients make better decisions about the use of these technologies, which ultimately will lead to the best possible outcomes," he said. The project, called "Advancing Innovative Comparative Effectiveness Research in Cancer Diagnostics," or ADVICE, will be co-led by investigators from the UW schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, Group Health, Veterans Affairs and the Hutchinson Center, which will serve as the study's data center.

Breast imaging -- A $4 million project led by Group Health will support comparative-effectiveness research of conventional and cutting-edge breast cancer imaging techniques to help determine which modalities are most effective for women according to individual patient demographics and risk factors. It will use data from the NCI's Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium, a nationwide collaborative network of mammography, tumor and pathology registries. With modeling experts from NCI's Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network, the project will compare the effectiveness of various breast cancer screening strategies such as film-screen mammography, digital mammography and breast MRI.

"This study will let us evaluate different strategies for breast cancer screening so we can inform women about the best screening choices for them, based on their own age, risk factors and illnesses." The grant, "Comparative Effectiveness of Breast Imaging Strategies in Community Practice," will be co-led by investigators at Group Health, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of California at San Francisco, the University of Vermont an
