Clinical Trial Research Studies


Clinical trials are conducted in order to obtain the most current information for medications, examinations and the disease process.

SouthCoast Health is participating in a 10,000 patient, multi-center research project evaluating a novel breast ultrasound device, called SoftVue™, for women who have dense breast tissue. SoftVue is the world's first three-dimensional, whole-breast ultrasound system that uses a one-of-a-kind circular transducer. It was created to assist physicians in distinguishing normal tissue from areas in the breast that may require further testing. For more information, visit

Women who have dense breast tissue and would like to participate in the project should contact Pacia Herrin, RT (R)(M)(BS) CN-BI at [email protected] or by calling 912.691.4222.
