Tumors lead to tissue hardening which in turn can cause loss of tissue elasticity.

The real time tissue elastography allows the examination of tissue compressibility in real time .

Colors range from red (soft tissue) to blue (stiff tissue).

According to the clinical and pathological evidence, benign lesions tend to be harder than breast tissue and softer than cancer.
