Ultrasound elastography, relying on the elastic properties of tissues, can discriminate and classify lesions in a number of tumor models. In order to improve the safety, applicability and dissemination of LPN and related surgeries, a real-time, image-guided intervention system using 3D elastic imaging (EI) registered to preoperative CT was created.
