Imagerie 3D d'élasticité du Sein Par échographie Ultrarapide au Cours d'un Traitement Par chimiothérapie néoadjuvante.
3D breast ultrasound elastography provides volumetric lesion stiffness details in real time.
3D acquisition is compared to breast MRI in order to evaluate volume measurements calculated
in ultrasound. Lesion elasticity is calculated in 3 planes with immediate reconstruction.
The purpose of this prospective study is to evaluate the feasibility of this technique and
compare the results to those of Breast MRI. For women receiving preoperative chemotherapy,
this technique will be evaluated with regard to tumour shrinkage and lesion elasticity
modifications under treatment.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
3D volumetric elasticity measurements
An utrafast shear wave imaging 3-plane acquisition provides several frames of breast lesion elasticity, that are reconstructed by means of a dedicated software thus permitting the direct volumetric elasticity measurements in kPa
