Ultrasound elastography techniques for the therapeutic monitoring of breast cancer

Abstract:

The composition, distribution and interaction of tissues found in tumours and their surrounding stroma has to date revealed a wealth of information about cancer biology. There exists a strong need to be able to measure these properties in vivo in order to provide further understanding and ultimately lead to better treatment for cancer patients. These interactions can manifest themselves in the form of distinctive biomechanical properties which ultrasound elastography, an image processing t...
