Slip imaging: reducing ambiguity in breast lesion assessment.
Ultrasound elasticity imaging (elastography) is gaining popularity as an adjunct to B-mode ultrasound for breast cancer diagnosis. Cancerous masses are usually stiffer than normal tissue, hence, using elasticity imaging should lead to better differentiation between benign and malignant masses than using B-mode alone. Clinicians assess the mobility of masses on palpation; cancers usually being less mobile. We introduce a method to estimate mobility, called slip imaging and combine it with conv...Expand abstract
