This study was undertaken to evaluate the value of quantitative elastography in the diagnosis of breast tumours. Conventional ultrasound (US) and quantitative elastography were performed in 108 women with 114 breast lesions by two experienced radiologists, and pathological results were available in all cases. For each lesion, the maximum, mean, and minimum (min) elasticity and elasticity ratio between lesions and surrounding tissue were measured.
