Breast cancer is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of death for women. Ultrasound is the main tool for breast cancer screening, but it can be influenced by the subjective factors of sonographers. With the continuous development of medical technology and artificial intelligence (AI), the application of breast ultrasound imaging technology is becoming increasingly widespread. Among them, the application of AI and automated breast volume scanning (ABVS) brings new opportunities and challenges for ultrasound diagnosis of breast diseases, while making breast ultrasound diagnosis more accurate and efficient. This article explores the application and prospects of AI and ABVS in ultrasound diagnosis of breast diseases.
