New instrumentation in breast sonography

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Sonography is a useful complementary technique to x-ray mammography in selected patients. The most important roles for ultrasound are (1) the determination of the cystic or solid nature of a mass and (2) the improvement of detection and characterization of masses in radiographically dense breasts. In order to accurately accomplish these tasks, high-quality ultrasound equipment must be utilized, and used correctly. This article will discuss the instrumentation currently in use, as well as the most recent developments in breast sonography.
