Assisted-freehand ultrasound elasticity imaging.

Abstract:

Good-quality elasticity imaging requires highly controlled compressions of the breast, which are often challenging to obtain with freehand, even by an experienced radiologist. This paper presents assisted-freehand ultrasound (AFUSON): a fusion of freehand and automated ultrasound systems designed to assisted elasticity imaging acquisition while remaining as flexible as freehand. In the form of a hand-held device, this semi-automatic solution delivers both increased acquisition precision and c...
