Mercy to Conduct Largest Breast Clinical Trial in State History

June 14, 2017

Mercy has teamed up with researchers from OU to conduct the largest breast clinical trial ever performed in Oklahoma. 

Over the next three years, 4,000 mammograms from Mercy patients will be analyzed. Dr. Alan Hollingsworth, medical director of Mercy Breast Center, hopes the study will lead to earlier diagnosis of breast cancer.

"If you compare mammograms head to head with MRI, it's about half. That's because MRI is not only picking up the ones missed by mammography but is finding them earlier,” said Mercy's Dr. Alan Hollingsworth during an interview with KFOR.
