PURPOSE To investigate the correlation between enhancement patterns and parameters of contrast material-enhanced ultrasonography (US) with prognostic factors in breast cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was approved by the institutional ethics committee, and written informed consent was obtained. Surgical resection specimens of 74 malignant breast lesions in 74 women (mean age, 55 years; age range, 32-78 years) who had undergone contrast-enhanced US were included.
