By A. Thomas Stavros, Cynthia L. Rapp, Steve H. Parker

This quantity is a whole and definitive consultant to appearing and reading breast ultrasound examinations. The booklet explains each point of the exam in detail—from apparatus choice and interpreting innovations, to correlations among sonographic and mammographic findings, to express characterization of sonographic abnormalities. Complementing the textual content are greater than 1,500 illustrations, together with ultrasound scans, corresponding mammographic photos, and diagrams of key elements of the examination.

Dr. Stavros completely explains the physics of breast ultrasound and the exact probes and different apparatus had to produce high-resolution photos of breast tissue. Chapters on breast ultrasound anatomy exhibit the anatomic element that may be noticeable on present gear and correlate sonographic and mammographic anatomic good points. next chapters describe exam strategies for comparing particular abnormalities and element the distinguishing good points of other cystic and good breast lesions. additionally incorporated is a bankruptcy on Doppler characterization of breast lesions.

5-MHz transducer with this convention, even though it would be a much less suitable transducer for breast ultrasound. To identify bandwidth as well as frequency, a more recent convention is to use the upper and lower ends of the bandwidth to define the transducer. The transducer with a bandwidth of 5 to 10 MHz would be termed a linear 10–5. One other frequently used convention is to use the upper end of the bandwidth to define the transducer frequency. Thus, the transducer with a bandwidth of 5 to 10 MHz would be termed a 10-MHz transducer.

5 MHz. The other might have a narrower bandwidth from 6 to 9 MHz. 5-MHz transducers. The disadvantage of the traditional method of selecting a nominal transducer frequency is that it does not convey any information about the transducer bandwidth. Partly to convey information about bandwidth, and partly to gain marketing advantages, the old convention used in selecting a nominal transducer frequency has become less predictable. In some instances, the ends of the transducer frequency bandwidth rather than center frequency are used as its nominal frequency.

A rectangular area of enhanced through-transmission with thin edge shadows is seen deep to a cyst using convention linear beams (left). Real-time compounding reduces the intensity of enhanced through-transmission and ablates thin edge shadows. Additionally, the enhanced sound transmission that persists is triangular rather than rectangular and does not extend as deeply with real-time compounding as with conventional imaging (right). conventional imaging because the superimposed speckle artifact is removed.
