The clinical utility of visualizing the blood flow in the margin and inside of tumors by ultrasonic pulsed Doppler method (UPDM) was evaluated in 54 patients (85 lesions) with various abdominal tumors. It was proved that UPDM was able to evaluate the vascularity of the tumor and the surrounding vascular system. These results indicate that this method may be applied clinically for judging the effects of and the indications for the transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) therapy. It is also… CONTINUE READING
