CEUS - increasing use in emergency and critical care

2018 08 May

Point-of-care ultrasonography has distinct advantages over computed tomography (CT) in terms of portability, cost, lack of ionising radiation, and improved spatial resolution. Still, CT has superior diagnostic accuracy in many urgent and emergent conditions. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) using intravascular microbubbles holds promise to close... Read more

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound for prostate cancer detection

2018 17 Apr

New research from Thomas Jefferson University suggests that contrast-enhanced subharmonic imaging (SHI) could be useful in detecting prostate cancers that are not identified by MRI. The findings will be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting, set for 22-27 April in Washington, DC. SHI is a new technique for imaging of microbubble ultrasound contrast... Read more

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound for detecting combined hepatocellular cholangiocarcinoma

2017 25 Oct

Combined hepatocellular cholangiocarcinoma (CHC) is a rare form of primary liver malignancy containing components of both hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Although the imaging features of CHC, HCC, and ICC on contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) may overlap, CEUS could be used in the differential diagnosis of... Read more
