OBJECTIVE To assess with dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and transient arterial occlusion whether the muscular micro-perfusion in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is improved after angioplasty or surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study had local institutional review board approval. Written informed consent was obtained from(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify muscular micro-perfusion and arterial perfusion reserve in peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and transient arterial occlusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study had local institutional review board approval and written informed consent was obtained from all subjects. We examined the(More)
OBJECTIVE : This feasibility study was performed to assess whether dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and transient arterial occlusion are able to detect alterations in the microvascular perfusion and arterial perfusion reserve in patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in comparison with healthy volunteers.

Funktionelle Bildgebungstechniken tragen zur wachsenden Rolle der Bildgebung bei Muskelerkrankungen bei, da Änderungen in der Morphologie des Skelettmuskels alleine als nicht spezifisch für eine bestimmte Erkrankung gelten. Ein gutes Beispiel dieser funktionellen Bildgebungstechniken ist der kontrastverstärkte Ultraschall (CEUS) zur Visualisierung und(More)
PURPOSE To investigate muscular micro-perfusion by employing dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and performing transient arterial occlusion in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM-2). METHODS Twenty DM-2 patients (mean age, 58 ± 8.6 years; duration of diabetes, 15.4 ± 12.1 years) and 20 healthy volunteers (mean age, 54 ± 5.4 years)(More)
