Ultrasound News: Shear Wave Elastography — A Business Case Study

Septembre 2018 -
By Steven Cohen, MD, FACR

Recent studies and guidelines have established the accuracy and reproducibility of shear wave elastography (SWE), an ultrasound modality that uses fast-moving shear waves to quantify tissue stiffness.1,2 These measurements provide clinically useful information. Obtaining that information quickly, accurately, and without discomfort generates clear benefits to the patient as well as the practice. But what about the economic impact?

Breast ultrasound without “false” steps

Written by Kathy J. Schilling, MD |   November 14, 2017

At a high-volume breast imaging center, the addition of elastography helps avert both false positives and false negatives.

Ultrasound screening enables physicians to find masses that are not detected on mammography as well as gain more information on mammographically identified lesions with targeted imaging. Use of the modality has increased as physicians have learned more about the challenges of mammography in dense breasts.

(...)

The ultrasound system (Aixplorer, SuperSonic Imagine) uses a technology called real-time ShearWave Elastography (SWE), which displays a color-coded map with analysis of tissue stiffness. This information allows physicians to determine with confidence if a lesion is likely to be benign or malignant based on stiffness compared to background breast tissue when used in conjunction with morphologic analysis. Malignant lesions typically are stiff, whereas benign lesions tend to be soft.

Breast ultrasound from the patient’s perspective

By Dr Kamilia Kozlowski, October 2017, DI EUROPE

Knowing that modern mammography can miss cancer in dense breast tissue, my colleagues and I at the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center have been performing ultrasound screening since 1983 for dense breasts and indeterminate mammographic clinical findings. We recently helped pass a breast density notification law here in Tennessee. Currently in the United States, more than half of the individual states have passed legislation which requires radiologists to inform women if it is found that they have dense breasts.
