Abstract

The incidence of breast cancer is increasing worldwide, reinforcing the importance of breast screening. Conventional hand-held ultrasound (HHUS) for breast screening is efficient and relatively easy to perform; however, it lacks systematic recording and localization. This study investigated an electromagnetic tracking-based whole-breast ultrasound (WBUS) system to facilitate the use of HHUS for breast screening. One-hundred nine breast masses were collected, and the detection of suspicious breast lesions was compared between the WBUS system, HHUS and a commercial automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) system. The positioning error between WBUS and ABUS (1.39 ± 0.68 cm) was significantly smaller than that between HHUS and ABUS (1.62 ± 0.91 cm, p = 0.014) and HHUS and WBUS (1.63 ± 0.9 cm, p = 0.024). WBUS is a practical clinical tool for breast screening that can be used instead of the often unavailable and costly ABUS.
