Objectives. To illustrate and compare the appearances of variable breast conditions by conventional and real-time spatial compound images. Methods. Cases illustrative of a broad range of breast conditions were collected. Each image pair consisted of conventional and real-time compound images with a stationary probe to maintain an identical projection. Results. The various breast conditions, including normal anatomic structures and abnormal lesions, were evaluated and compared by conventional and real-time compound images. The real-time compound images revealed more realistic and clear images with reduced artifacts. Conclusions. Real-time compound images are superior to conventional images of normal and abnormal breast conditions. Real-time compound imaging is a good technique for evaluating the breast state.
