Usefulness of real-time tissue elastography for detecting the border of basal cell carcinomas.

Preoperative evaluation of tumor thickness and silhouette in basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is one of the important assessments to be done. However, evaluation is not always sufficient even utilizing sonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Recently, a new technique called real-time tissue elastography (RTE) was developed that can display the hardness of… CONTINUE READING
