Diagnostic performance and additional value of elastosonography in focal breast lesions: statistical correlation between size-dependant strain index measurements, multimodality-BI-RADS score, and histopathology in a clinical routine setting


Ebner, Lukas; Bonel, Harald M; Huber, Adrian; Ross, Steffen G; Christe, Andreas (2014). Diagnostic performance and additional value of elastosonography in focal breast lesions: statistical correlation between size-dependant strain index measurements, multimodality-BI-RADS score, and histopathology in a clinical routine setting. ISRN Radiology, 2014:ID 396368-8pp.

Abstract

Objective. To evaluate the diagnostic benefit of real-time elastography (RTE) in clinical routine. Strain indices (SI) for benign and malignant tumors were assessed. Methods. 100 patients with 110 focal breast lesions were retrieved. Patients had mammography (MG), ultrasound (US), and, if necessary, MRI. RTE was conducted after ultrasound. Lesions were assessed with BI-RADS for mammography and ultrasound. Diagnosis was established with histology or follow-up. Results. SI for BI-RADS 2 was . Higher SI was observed for BI-RADS 3 lesions. SI of BI-RADS 4 and 5 lesions were significantly higher and . 31 malignant tumors exhibited an average SI of ; SI of benign lesions was ( value ). ROC analysis threshold was >3.8 for malignant disease. Sensitivity of sonography was 90.3% (specificity 78.5%). RTE showed a sensitivity of 87.1% (specificity 79.7%). Accuracy of all modalities combined was 96.8%. In BI-RADS 3 lesions RTE was able to detect all malignant lesions (sensitivity 100%, specificity 92.9%, and accuracy 93.9%). Conclusions. RTE increased sensitivity and specificity for breast cancer detection when used in combination with ultrasound.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
