A 3D morphological analysis method was developed to analyze the fat content on tumor boundary interface and in different peri-tumoral shells away from the tumor. A total of 114 mass type breast cancers were analyzed, including 87 HR(+), 13 HR(-)HER2(+), and 14 TN. The volumetric fat percentage in three shells surrounding the tumor: 150%-100%, 200%-150%, 250%-200% of the tumor convex hall were measured, also the mean contrast enhancement in fibroglandular tissue contained within three shells were measured. The peri-tumor fat content and contrast enhancement is the highest in the most aggressive TN tumors compared to other subtypes.
