Since this is a preliminary evaluation, the elastography imaging procedure was performed in addition to our standard procedure of ten systematic biopsies, plus extra biopsies of suspicious areas where appropriate. The elastography images did not influence the biopsy pattern and the elastography findings were subsequently compared with tumour detection on the biopsy… Expand
