OBJECTIVE To explore the value of elastography score and strain rate ratio in the diagnosis of small breast malignant focus. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 22 patients with breast small malignant foci less than 10 mm. Ultrasound characteristics were summed up in breast small cancer. RESULTS On elastogram, 2 patients scored 3, 14 scored 4 and 6 scored 5.The average strain rate ratio of all foci was 4.76, and there was correlation between it and elastography scores. CONCLUSION… CONTINUE READING
