Ultrasound shear-wave elastography (SWE) has become a valuable tool for diagnosis of breast tumors. The purpose of this study was to quantify the elastic heterogeneity of breast tumors in SWE by using contourlet-based texture features and evaluating their diagnostic performance for classification of benign and malignant breast tumors, with pathologic results as the gold standard. A total of 161 breast tumors in 125 women who underwent B-mode and SWE ultrasonography before biopsy were included… CONTINUE READING
