Axillary lymph node status in BIRADS 4-5 female patients: can shear wave and strain ultrasound elastography help?
Background The status of axillary nodes is a determining factor of management and prognosis for patients having a recent diagnosis of breast cancer. Axillary nodes are usually evaluated by
Experimental Evidence of Generation and Reception by a Transluminal Axisymmetric Shear Wave Elastography Prototype
The obtained experimental evidence provided proof-of-concept for the transluminal elastography probe and encouraged further exploration of clinical applications.
The diagnostic accuracy of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and shear wave elastography in comparison to dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI for diagnosing BIRADS 3 and 4 lesions
Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of female morbidity and mortality. Management options vary between lesions of BIRADS categories 3 and 4. Therefore, reliable differentiation would improve
Deep Learning Identification of Stiffness Markers in Breast Cancer
The automatic identification of cellular and extracellular features from hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained slides reveals that global and local breast tissue stiffness best correlate with the percentage of straight collagen.

A substantial portion of cancer cases and deaths could be prevented by broadly applying effective prevention measures, such as tobacco control, vaccination, and the use of early detection tests.
Shear-Wave Elastographic Features of Breast Cancers: Comparison With Mechanical Elasticity and Histopathologic Characteristics
Quantitative and qualitative SWE features reflect both the mechanical elasticity and histopathologic characteristics of breast cancers, which have low amounts of fibrosis, high tumor cellularity, and intratumoral necrosis.
Two-view versus single-view shear-wave elastography: comparison of observer performance in differentiating benign from malignant breast masses.
PURPOSE To determine whether two-view shear-wave elastography (SWE) improves the performance of radiologists in differentiating benign from malignant breast masses compared with single-view SWE.
Comparison of shear-wave and strain ultrasound elastography in the differentiation of benign and malignant breast lesions.
Either elastography technique can improve overall diagnostic performance in the differentiation of benign and malignant lesions when combined with B-mode ultrasound, however, the sensitivity and specificity of shear-wave and strainElastography were different according to lesion histologic profile, tumor grade, and breast thickness.
Sonoelastography in Distinguishing Benign from Malignant Complex Breast Mass and Making the Decision to Biopsy
For complex breast masses, sonoelastography allows increase in both the accuracy in distinguishing benign from malignant lesions and the specificity in deciding whether to perform biopsy.

Diagnosis of solid breast lesions by elastography 5-point score and strain ratio method.
The 5-point scoring system and strain ratio has similar diagnostic performance, and the strain ratio could be more objective to differentiate the masses when those masses were difficult to be judged by using 5- point scoring system in sonoelastographic images.
