It is well known that prostate cancer (PCa) has a higher cell density than the surrounding normal tissue. This increased cell density leads to an alteration in tissue elasticity, which can be measured and displayed by sonographic-based elastography under real-time conditions. Real-time sonoelastography (RTE) has been proven capable to visualize PCa areas as “hard” lesions and therefore can be used for PCa detection and for targeted ultrasound-guided biopsy. Further applications such as the… CONTINUE READING
