Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Monthly examination of the breast continues to be recommended by the American Cancer Society. In order to obtain a better understanding of multi-force palpation, FEA was undertaken. Three forces were applied simultaneously to the surface of a soft tissue model with an included tumor. The effect of tumor size on the surface displacement was measured. The results demonstrate that three indentor analysis provides realistic information on surface deformation.
