    High-resolution Imaging Coupled With Elastography May Accurately Detect Breast Cancer in Surgical Margins

    A high-resolution, three-dimensional imaging technique, when combined with quantitative measurement of tissue elasticity, could accurately detect cancer within the resected margins of surgical specimens taken from patients undergoing breast-conserving surgery, according to a study published in Cancer Research , a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. “Despite living in the ‘digital age,’ surgeons must routinely rely on their eyesight and sense of touch to determine if they have removed the entire tumor during breast-conserving surgery,” said Brendan F. Kennedy, PhD , associate professor in the School of Engineering at The University of Western Australia (UWA) and laboratory head of BRITElab ...
