How to kill a trial
The Tomosynthesis Mammography Imaging Screening Trial (TMIST) was designed to see if 3-D mammography, or tomosynthesis, could help personalize screening and if 3-D is actually better than the less expensive 2-D mammography.
TMIST is the largest breast cancer screening trial in the United States, with a cost of $100 million and a planned enrollment of 165,000 women.
There's just one problem. The study is falling short on enrollment of patients and participating sites. Will this mean the death of TMIST?
