Breast Imaging with 3D Ultrasound Computer TomographyMS77

Ultrasound Tomography is an emerging technology for early breast cancer diagnosis. At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology we are developing a 3D ultrasound computer tomography device which may overcome the limitations of current 2D systems. In this overview talk we explore system design aspects, the challenges for tomographic reconstruction, present first clinical results and discuss recent as well as future advancements.

This presentation is part of Minisymposium “MS77 - Advances in Ultrasound Tomography (2 parts)
organized by: Jennifer Mueller (Colorado State University) , Raul Gonzalez Lima (Universidade de São Paulo) .
