Test Demonstrates Effectiveness of Cancer Therapy in Children

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE) dated 10/4/13 -- Physicians announced today the results of a study showing that a safe, radiation-free diagnostic scan can be used in children with cancer to assess tumor response to therapy.

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging "is emerging as a very good and safe mechanism for evaluating the effectiveness of cancer therapy in children without having to use CT, which exposes the child to ionizing radiation," Dr. Jamie Coleman told the International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS) at their annual conference in Chicago.
