Congratulations Neb Duric, Ph.D., Peter Littrup, M.D., Mark Sak, Ph.D. Cuiping Li, Ph.D, Olivier Roy, Ph.D, Rachel Brem, M.D. and Mary Yamashita, M.D. for their amazing accomplishment and dedication to research to further the positive impact SoftVue 3D Whole Breast Ultrasound Tomography has on the breast imaging industry.
Highlights of the research:
- The majority of breast cancers (95%) are located at the circumferential fat-glandular interface (FGI), a high-contrast structure by sound speed (SS) in the coronal plane.
- Tissue locations for cysts also suggest they are more likely (64%) to be surrounded by fibroglandular tissue, while fibroadenomas are intermediate in location at the FGI (63%) and surrounded by fibroglandular tissue (35%).
- Location of masses relative to the fat-glandular interface may be useful to incorporate in computer-aided US diagnostics for screening in women with dense breasts.
