Özet

Introduction: Primary and secondary angiosarcomas of the breast are rare neoplasms. Radiologically, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography, and ultrasound (US) findings of angiosarcomas have been reported previously. However, ultrasound (US) elastography findings of angiosarcoma have not been reported yet. Currently, US elastography should be used commonly to decide biopsy or short-term follow-up of breast lesions.
