Abstract

Vibro-acoustography has gained interest in the recent years as a new modality for medical imaging. This method is based on low-frequency vibrations induced in the object by the radiation force of ultrasound. This paper focuses on potential applications of vibro-acoustography in breast imaging, including detection of microcalcifications, detection of arterial calcifications, and soft tissue imaging. In addition, we will briefly discuss our recent results of in vivo breast vibro-acoustography. Future developments and potential impact of vibro-acoustography in breast imaging are also discussed.
