Contrast-enhanced ultrasound and elastosonography before and after IRE ablation of breast cancer in a rabbit model. a, b Ultrasound and elastosonography before IRE showed the echo and rigidity of the ablation zone. c, d After IRE, elastosonography led to an increase in the rigidity value (1 day after IRE), followed by a decrease (7 days after IRE). e Based on contrast-enhanced ultrasound after IRE, there was no enhancement in the ablation zone (1 day after). f Based on contrast-enhanced ultrasound, 7 days after IRE, the area without blood supply had enlarged
