Elastography now available for breast ultrasound

Breast elastography was developed to increase the accuracy of breast ultrasound by eliminating many of its false-positives (false alarms). Elastography uses ultrasound waves to determine how stiff or hard masses seen on ultrasound are. Soft masses are very likely to be benign and therefore can be followed closely, instead of being biopsied. Hard masses have a higher chance of being cancerous and therefore require a biopsy. Elastography requires special ultrasound units with elastography capability, which are available at Weinstein Imaging Associates.
