This booklet introduces an exhilarating new technique for breast ultrasound diagnostics – computerized whole-breast quantity scanning (3D ABVS). Scanning method is defined intimately, with information on scanning positions and protocols. Imaging findings are then illustrated and mentioned for regular breast editions, the several types of breast melanoma, fibroadenomas, cystic disorder, benign and malignant male breast issues, mastitis, breast implants, and postoperative breast scars. so that it will reduction appreciation of some great benefits of 3D ABVS, comparisons with findings on X-ray mammography and standard 2nd handheld US are provided. Readers might be particularly inspired by way of the convincing demonstration of the benefits of the hot approach for prognosis of breast melanoma in ladies with dense glandular tissue. In permitting readers to benefit the best way to practice and interpret 3D ABVS, this publication can be of significant worth for all who're embarking on its use. it's going to additionally function a welcome reference for radiologists, oncologists, and ultrasonographers who have already got a few familiarity with the technique.

The nipple on the MMG is retracted and not seen properly; on the ABVS tomogram, the nipple projection is marked by the rectangle. The shadow mass with retraction pattern in the outer quadrant on the MMG coincides with the location of a hypoechoic mass with “spiculated” pattern on the ABVS (arrows). The distance from the nipple to the mass is the same in both methods, marked by the thin arrow. (b) Left part, ABVS tomogram in L MED (mediolateral) view; right part, mammogram in mediolateral oblique view—(L-M).
B–d) On ABVS obtained in different views. (b) L MED view (left mediolateral oblique view), (c) L AP view (left anteroposterior coronal view), (d) L SUP view (left superior-to-inferior view). “Dense breast” on ABVS is seen as echogenic cellular breast tissue corresponding to the age. Fibroadenoma in the lower-inner quadrant of the left breast, according to L SUP and L MED slices, is clearly visible on this “dense” background. A hyperechoic rim, which surrounds the FA, is thin but clear. The nipples are marked by rectangles may be rather difficult to identify the same FA on a background of fibrocystic disease or dense breast.
In this case, it is necessary to use the capabilities of ultrasound. US is superior to MMG due to better contrast between the FA and stromal-glandular complex. In our study, MMG failed to show a large FA in the upper quadrants inside dense breast tissue but clearly revealed only a small one—in the lower quadrants where fatty tissue dominates. Being a large one, the FA, which was approximately 2 cm in size, was occult for MMG but clearly visible for US. On side-by-side comparison of corresponding MMG and ABVS images, the large FA is masked by dense glandular tissue (Fig.
