Comparing Histologic Prognostic Features of Invasive Breast Cancer With Mean Stiffness Using ShearWave Elastography

By Prof Andy Evans. April/May 2014.

A recently published study [1] was conducted by the author and colleagues comparing the prognostic value of histologic features of invasive breast cancer for the lesion’s mean stiffness as measured by ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™). The quantitative measurement of a lesion’s stiffness can be achieved, in kilopascal with SWE, during a routine ultrasound breast examination. Two published studies have already demonstrated SWE to be accurate in helping the differentiation of probably benign and probably malignant solid breast masses, with a very high level of reproducibility. The technology therefore holds promise as a diagnostic tool for women who are recalled because of mass lesions at mammographic screening as well as with symptomatic masses.

Liver fibrosis emerges as a breakthrough for elastography

March 6th, 2014

Back then Doppler was new and people were excited about it. They wouldn’t buy a high-end machine without the capability. Yet they didn’t a quite know what they would do with it. That’s now the situation with elastography.’ A renowned expert in ultrasound, Prof. Cosgrove has authored numerous publications and is a key contributor to the ‘Guidelines and Recommendations on the Clinical Use of Ultrasound Elastography’ from the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) that spells out the basic principles and technology as well as the clinical applications of ultrasound elastography.

RSNA Exhibit Floor Reflects New Era of Radiology

February 3rd, 2014 - The role of radiology goes beyond the traditional role toward the direction of patient care management
By Greg Freiherr

What was once diagnostic imaging is on track to becoming much more. Radiology is on the verge of a new era in which its focus goes beyond the traditional gatekeeper role, directing the earliest steps in patient management to one that adjusts the direction of care throughout the management of a patient.
The cornerstone of this new era — patient-centric imaging — was the spark behind last year’s “Patients First” campaign by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), ...
