New progress of multimodal ultrasound technologies in diagnosis of breast cancer
Ultrasound is one of the conventional techniques for the clinical diagnosis of breast cancer. The ultrasonic features of breast cancer are diverse, and more information is needed to ensure its early diagnosis and assessment. So, the combination of the multimodal ultrasound technologies is particularly important for the diagnosis of breast cancer. Here, the authors summarized the recent progress of multimodal ultrasound technologies, including automated breast volume scanner, elastography, contrast-enhanced ultrasound, etc. These technologies are playing important roles in the diagnosis of breast cancer and may have more promising clinical prospects in the future.
