This e-book introduces a thrilling new strategy for breast ultrasound diagnostics – computerized whole-breast quantity scanning (3D ABVS). Scanning method is defined intimately, with information on scanning positions and protocols. Imaging findings are then illustrated and mentioned for regular breast variations, the various varieties of breast melanoma, fibroadenomas, cystic affliction, benign and malignant male breast issues, mastitis, breast implants, and postoperative breast scars. so as to relief appreciation of the advantages of 3D ABVS, comparisons with findings on X-ray mammography and traditional second hand held US are offered. Readers can be in particular inspired through the convincing demonstration of some great benefits of the hot strategy for prognosis of breast melanoma in ladies with dense glandular tissue. In permitting readers to benefit how one can practice and interpret 3D ABVS, this ebook might be of serious worth for all who're embarking on its use. it's going to additionally function a welcome reference for radiologists, oncologists, and ultrasonographers who have already got a few familiarity with the technique.

The breast lobule consists of 20–40 acini or alveoli which are the main secretory unit of the breast tissue. The lobule and the first terminal duct arising from it constitute the terminal ductlobular unit (TDLU). The TDLU is an important site for the development of cancer and benign proliferations of the breast . The breast fibroglandular stroma is a clinically important structure consisting of supporting stroma and periglandular stroma. The supporting stroma is formed from processes of the superficial fascia and interlobular layers consisting of coarse connective tissue from collagen fibers, relatively poor in cells.
6 Image Interpretation 25 a b Fig. 18 A case of invasive ductal carcinoma in the upper-internal quadrant of the left breast in a 38-year-old woman. Comparison of MMG and ABVS data. Detection of the lesion in dense breast found by ABVS by mapping it on the MMG. The nipple line is marked by a straight line. Note the distance between the nipple and the lesion is equal on both images. (a) Left part, mammogram in mediolateral oblique view; right part, ABVS tomogram in latero-medial view. The tumor on the MMG is present as a zone of focal microcalcification against the dense glandular tissue.
