3 Dimensional vascular imaging has provided a quantifiable measure of treatment success or failure in breast diseases. The ability to presurgically map the vessel distribution allows for targeted surgical planning. The vessel density correlates with activity in both the breast cancer and the locoregional disease. Postoperative pathologic analysis is assisted by focusing on tumor tissue rather than benign disease associated with a primary or recurrent malignancy. The new advances of volumetric analysis make this exam less operator dependent as the probe is fixed in position.
