Table 2 Highest specificity and sensitivity values from analysis of data classified into five pathology categories

From: High-frequency ultrasound for intraoperative margin assessments in breast conservation surgery: a feasibility study

Pathology Parameter Specificity Sensitivity
Lobular carcinomas Peak density 100% 86%
Ductal carcinomas Peak density 100% 74%
FN-FA-TA Peak density & cepstrum slope 80% 100%
Benign pathologies Cepstrum slope 80% 82%
  1. The specificity and sensitivity for each tissue category was calculated with respect to normal breast tissue.
