Breast and Axilla | 5.4 Elastography
Case 5.4.2 Elastography malignant lesions


Elastography:
Fibroadenoma and infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The carcinoma is stiff and the fibroadenoma is soft
Elastography:
Small ductal carcinoma with elastography. The mass is stiffer than the surrounding tissue and larger than the hypoechoic lesion
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The lesion is stiff with elastography
Elastography:
6 x 4 mm small breast carcinoma. With elastography the stiff area is larger than the mass
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The lesion is stiff with elastography
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma
Elastography:
Tiny infiltrating ductal carcinoma with increased stiffness with elastography
Elastography:
Ductal carcinoma with increased stiffness with elastography
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma
Elastography:
Small invasive ductal carcinoma with increased stiffness with elastography
Elastography:
Ductal carcinoma with an irregular contour and acoustic shadowing that is stiff with elastography
Elastography:
Ductal carcinoma with an oval lesion. There are tiny calcifications and the lesion is stiff with elastography
Elastography:
Difficult to detect small ductal carcinoma that causes some acoustic shadowing
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma with a poorly visible lesion causing architectural distortion
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma with a mass with difficult to determine margins. The visibility depends on the angulation of the transducer
Elastography:
Infiltrative ductal carcinoma with increased stiffness with elastography
Elastography :
Small difficult to find invasive ductal carcinoma. Elastography showed a small stiff lesion
Elastography pitfalls:
Breast lesion that biopsy proved to be a mucinous carcinoma
Elastography pitfalls:
Extensive ductal carcinoma in situ and infiltrating carcinoma with microcalcifications
Elastography pitfalls:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma that was soft with elastography
Elastography pitfalls:
Small hypoechoic mass that biopsy proved to be a mucinous carcinoma. The lesion is soft with elastography
Mucinous carcinoma:
Poorly visible large mucinous carcinoma that is soft with elastography
Elastography:
Fibroadenoma and infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The carcinoma is stiff and the fibroadenoma is soft
Elastography:
Small ductal carcinoma with elastography. The mass is stiffer than the surrounding tissue and larger than the hypoechoic lesion
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The lesion is stiff with elastography
Elastography:
6 x 4 mm small breast carcinoma. With elastography the stiff area is larger than the mass
Elastography:
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The lesion is stiff with elastography
Elastography:

Mucinous carcinoma:
Poorly visible large mucinous carcinoma that is soft with elastography
