Preoperative accurate differential diagnosis of benign and malignant breast tumors is very important to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment. This study aims to evaluate the potential efficacy of the virtual elastography (vMRE) method in the differential diagnosis of IDC and FA, and help guide clinical management. Our results suggested that mean virtual stiffness obtained by this vMRE method can accurately distinguish the hardness difference between FA and IDC.
