Acoustic radiation force impulse ARFI ultrasound imaging of breast lesions



Acoustic radiation force impulse ARFI ultrasound imaging of breast lesions







The aim of this study was to determine the appearance of breast lesions using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging and to correlate the acoustic radiation force impulse values with the pathological results. The Virtual Touch tissue quantification (VTQ) values were analyzed in 86 patients (mean age 45.6 years, range 17 78 years) with 92 breast lesions (65 benign, 27 malignant; mean size 25.7mm). The diagnostic performance of acoustic radiation force impulse values were evaluated with respect to sensitivity, specificity, and area under the curve using a receiver operating characteristic curve analysis. The mean Virtual Touch tissue quantification values of the.
