Contrast-enhanced ultrasound shows vascular details of liver nodules

June 16, 2008 Contrast-enhanced ultrasound shows vascular details of liver nodules Wendy Despain -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Contrast-enhanced ultrasound with microflow imaging provides noninvasive analysis of the vascular structure and hemodynamics of liver nodules. This analysis, in turn, provides information about how advanced hepatocellular carcinoma is. Dr. Katsutoshi Sugimoto and colleagues in the gastroenterology and hepatology department at Tokyo Medical University, along with Toshiba and Hyogo College of Medicine in Hyogo, Japan, studied a total of 61 liver nodules with contrast-enhanced ultrasound using microflow imaging. They were able to see the blood vessels down to the fine branches.
