James and Dr. L. Evans (in the Department of Radiology) at the Southern General Hospital, Glasgow. ULTRASONIC DIAGNOSTICS CAPABILITIES OF PRESENT SYSTEMS P. N. T. K. ABSTRACT No matter what the final display may be, similar considerations apply to the resolutions of all ultrasonic pulseecho systems. In range, the resolution is determined by the duration of the pulse, and in azimuth and elevation, by the width of the beam. The pulse is generally the limiting component, and the dimensions of the scanned anatomy control the choice of wavelength.

Surveys have shown that early diagnosis can be achieved by both clinical examination and by the radiographic technique of Mammography, the detected tumours being both smaller and associated with a lower incidence of axillary node metastases. Detection efficiencies of 90% can now be obtained with each technique separately and can approach 100% when the techniques are used in complement, since the clinical examination is more effective with the highly glandular breast and mammography is better at detecting small tumours in the large fatty breasts.
