Breast cancer diagnosis using ultrasound elasticity imaging

Liufu V, Hiller JE
Record ID 32011000740
Authors' recomendations: Most studies identified by this update demonstrated that USEI is not a superior imaging examination to conventional US in the diagnosis of breast cancers. In addition, there is conflicting evidence on the diagnostic value of using a combination of USEI and conventional US.HealthPACT noted that although elastography appears to be a viable imaging tool for liver fibrosis, the use of elastography for breast imaging is limited. Therefore HealthPACT has recommended that further assessment of this technology is no longer warranted.
