Volumetric Automated Full-field Breast Ultrasound in daily routine - are we there yet?

There is a developing trend to introduce the automated fullfield breast ultrasound (AFBUS) as a replacement for handheld ultrasonography (HHUS) at least as a screening method for some groups of patients but is the newest incarnation of this diagnostic method really ready for daily routine? Breast ultrasound is a wellaccepted and reliable diagnostic method for evaluation of women with clinically or radiologically suspicious breast lesions. Attempts to automate breast ultrasonography were made as early as 1979 but it was not until the last decade that we saw major advancement in this field which was made possible by introduction of new high frequency probes and powerful computers capable of coping with high amount of collected data and complicated image processing (artifact removal).
