Elastography is a new medical imaging modality that maps the elastic properties of soft tissue, helping in the detection and diagnosis of disease, and reducing the need for biopsy.
This book is a guide to breast elastography for practising radiologists.
Beginning with an overview of the basic principles of elastography, the following sections provide in depth explanations of different techniques, highlighting interpretation methods and potential pitfalls.
Authored by recognised experts from Athens, the text is highly illustrated with radiological images and diagrams, and includes case studies covering a range of breast pathologies and explaining elastography techniques.
