The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of double contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (DCEUS) for assessing the Borrmann classification of advanced gastric carcinoma (AGC) preoperatively. Three hundred twenty nine patients with proved AGC were enrolled. DCEUS (intravenous microbubbles combined with combined with oral contrast-enhanced(More)
INTRODUCTION Double contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (DCUS) is a new method we used in predicting lymph node metastasis (LNM) in patients with early gastric cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventy-six patients with early gastric cancer diagnosed by gastroscope and confirmed by pathology after operation were examined using DCUS preoperatively. Group N1(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between enhanced intensity of contrast enhanced ultrasound and microvessel density of aortic atherosclerotic plaque in rabbit model. The abdominal aortas of thirty-six male New Zealand rabbits were damaged by balloon expansion and the animals were then fed a high fat diet for 12 weeks. Twenty-seven(More)
The response evaluation criteria in solid tumors, which are based on tumor size alone, are the most frequently used and effective criteria by which to evaluate the tumor response to chemotherapy. However, the mechanism of tumor-targeted drugs is different from traditional cytotoxic drugs. Tumor-targeted drugs are designed to interfere with specific aberrant(More)
INTRODUCTION The clinical value of double contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (DCUS) in determining the Lauren classification of advanced gastric carcinoma needed investigation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty-eight patients with gastric cancer proved by endoscopic biopsy underwent preoperative DCUS examination in which an oral contrast agent was combined with(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between the enhancement patterns and clinicopathological features of gastric cancer using intravenous contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS). In this Ethics Committee-approved prospective study, five hundred fifty two patients with gastric cancer who gave informed consent were examined preoperatively(More)
Lymph node metastases at the time of diagnosis have a major impact on both therapeutic strategy and tumor recurrence for patients with papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC). Our objective was to evaluate the usefulness of PTMC characteristics on ultrasonography for predicting central compartment lymph node metastases (CCLNM) of PTMC. One hundred twenty(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the angiogenesis inhibitor Endostar on carotid plaque neovascularization in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). Ninety-one patients who had NSCLC with soft carotid plaques were selected for treatment either with the NP regimen (vinorelbine +(More)
OBJECTIVE to evaluate the therapeutic effect of targeted endostatin-loaded microbubbles, combined with improved, focused, directional ultrasound radiation for inhibition of subcutaneous translocation in situ colon tumor angiogenesis in colon cancer. METHODS 65 BALB/c nude mice with subcutaneous translocation in situ colon tumors were randomly divided into(More)
Ultrasonic cavitation is a novel potential approach for cancer treatment. We optimized the techniques of ultrasonic cavitation to enhance antitumor efficacy in a mouse model with human pancreatic cancer. A polydisperse MB contrast agent formulation (TS-P) with a mean number diameter of 1.9 μm was depleted in small diameter particles by differential(More)
