Detecting angiogenesis in breast tumors: comparison of color Doppler flow imaging with ultrasound-guided diffuse optical tomography.


We investigated the correlation between color Doppler flow imaging (CDFI) and ultrasound (US)-guided diffuse optical tomography (DOT) for detection of breast tumor angiogenesis. Both CDFI and DOT were performed in 214 breast lesions scheduled for biopsy. The lesions were classified as vascular or nonvascular on CDFI and total hemoglobin concentration (THC… (More)
