摘要High resolution sonographic (39 cases), magnetic resonance imaging (32 cases), and mammographic (35 cases) measurements of preoperative size of breast cancer were correlated with the pathologic size in 39 patients with breast carcinoma to determine the most accurate imaging technique for breast cancer size. There were nine T1, 21 T2, four T3, and four T4 tumors. Sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging measurements of tumor size demonstrated correlation coefficients of 0.92 and 0.93, respectively, both of which were superior to that of mammography (0.84). Sonographic tumor size evaluation thus is shown to be equivalent to magnetic resonance imaging in this study Three of nine (33%), four of seven (57%), and four of eight (50%) T1 tumors would have been overstaged by ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and mammography, respectively. Three of 21 (14.3%), one of 16 (6.3%), and two of 18 (11.1%) T2 tumors would have been understaged by ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and mammography, respectively. We therefore found ultrasonography to be of value in the diagnosis and staging of breast cancer.
