The early detection of breast cancer has severely improved during the past 20 years, but there is still room for improvement like a better clarification of indications without using ionizing radiation. The evaluation of biopsy data showed that about 80% of women diagnosed with cancer after the different types of imaging do not have cancer. We target on improving this high percentage by improving the specificity by measuring the elasticity of lesions. Measurements on 10 volunteers with well known lesions provide an important step towards seeing if ARC-MR is capable to improve the specificity of standard breast cancer diagnostic.
