|Role of Elastography in the evaluation of soft tissue lesions. A preliminary study.|
In our preliminary experience, ES could improve US performance in the differential diagnosis between benign and malignant soft tissue lesions
In the ES3 pattern, the role of elastography is very limited as our data demonstrated, while in the other patterns there was complete clinical/histological concordance. Indeed in the 15 cases with ES3 pattern, only 8/10 were confirmed as true negative in histology, while the remaining 7/15 were found as false negative in histology.
However, further studies will be required in order to improve understanding and interpreting elastography findings in soft tissue lesions.
