OPTO-ACOUSTIC BREAST IMAGING

Schematic representation of opto-acoustic breast imaging

Opto acoustic breast imaging is a new generation diagnostic tool currently in the clinical trial stage for diagnosis of malignant or benign breast lumps. According to a European journal of breast cancer around 4 million new cases of breast cancer are detected every year with almost 80 percent of them turning out to be benign on laboratory testing. It is difficult for radiologists to rule out malignancy at the imaging stage. The cost of conducting surgical or core needle biopsy for every suspicious lump outweighs the results especially in women coming from struggling economies. A low cost diagnostic tool such as opto acoustic imaging can help in the timely detection of breast cancer in the early stages and also help prevent and control the increasing mortality due to this disease in developing as well as developed countries.

3D Breast Ultrasound

Even though 3D Ultrasonography is not new in fields like cardiology or obstetrics, it is comparatively new in the field of breast imaging. The ordinary 2D Breast ultrasonography is thought to be troublesome on the grounds that it is hard to to tell apart between normal or benign fibrocystic lesions from early pathologic lesions. Currently with the improvement and accessibility of 3d Ultrasonography , identification of lesions from benign changes has become easier. Some studies have demonstrated that 3D ultrasonography is a better device for screening young patients and patients with dense breasts. 3D breast ultrasound can be additionally utilized as an adjunct to plain film/ computerized mammography or digital breast tomosysnthesis (DBT).
