ShearWave Elastography and Breast Imaging

March 2016 - By Dr. K. Schilling

At a busy breast imaging facility in Florida the advanced ultrasound technique, ShearWave Elastography (SWE) has altered the way women are cared for both for benign and suspicious findings. SWE has reduced the number of benign lesions mistakenly flagged for biopsy, significantly decreasing the false positive rate of ultrasound. The technique has also helped reduce the initial level of false negative diagnoses in patients who ultimately are found to have breast cancer. This article describes the role ShearWave technology plays in the breast imaging center and gives examples of cases in which it assists in refining the ultrasound diagnosis.
