Atlanta Ultrasound Elastography
Women’s Imaging Specialists is your trusted source for ultrasound Elastography in Atlanta. We are proud to announce the addition of Elastography as a tool in the early detection of breast cancer. Elastography is performed at the same time as handheld breast ultrasound and adds only a few minutes to the study. This innovative technology provides an extra dimension that complements gray scale and color Dopler imaging thus enabling the imaging of malignant tumors that would not normally be detectable using conventional studies.
Many tumors have tissue characteristics that are harder than the surrounding tissue; therefore, they appear less elastic than the surrounding tissue. This difference in tissue elasticity provides a clear contrast and can be used to verify the presence of a lesion. In addition, ultrasound researchers have found that ultrasound Elastography helps to distinguish between cancers and benign breast lesions. This advanced technology provides an easy way to eliminate needle biopsy for lesions that are most likely benign.
