Quantitative Evaluation of Renal Cortex Perfusion Using Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging Parameters in Ischemia–Reperfusion Injury in Rabbits
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate blood perfusion of the renal cortex during ischemia–reperfusion (I/R) injury using quantitative contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) parameters. In this experiment, 24 rabbits […]
Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Patterns for the Non-invasive Diagnosis of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Prospective Multicenter Study in Histologically Proven Liver Lesions in a Real-Life Setting Demonstrating the Benefit of Extended Late Phase Observation
Abstract The hallmark for the non-invasive diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in cirrhosis is arterial phase hyperenhancement (APHE), followed by late-onset (>60 s), mild washout. Large […]
Chemotherapy Augmentation Using Low-Intensity Ultrasound Combined with Microbubbles with Different Mechanical Indexes in a Pancreatic Cancer Model
Abstract The aim of the study was to explore the optimal mechanical indexes (MIs) for low-intensity ultrasound (LIUS) combined with microbubbles to enhance tumor blood perfusion and improve drug concentration […]
Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound Market | Rising Ultrasound Procedural Volume Projected to Boost Growth Opportunities
The contrast enhanced ultrasound market has been experiencing significant growth opportunities in the upcoming years. This market growth is on the back of growing ultrasound procedural volume, contrast imaging modes, […]
