To examine the performance of shear-wave elastography (SWE) for the differentiation of benign and malignant breast lesions using a meta-analysis. PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane library were searched for studies published up to January 2014. The references of retrieved relevant articles were reviewed to identify potential publications. Random-effect meta-analysis was conducted to assess the overall sensitivity and specificity of SWE in the differentiation of breast lesions. A total of 11… CONTINUE READING
