ABSTRACT
Ultrasound elastography for characterization of breast lesions has been clinically available for over 10 years. Both strain and shear wave imaging have been shown to have high sensitivity and specificity for characterizing breast lesions as benign or malignant. The technology continues to advance and new techniques are on the horizon. This article reviews the present state of breast elastography and discusses future advances that will be available clinically in the near future.
