BackgroundWe investigated effects of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) combined with contrast agent SonoVue on rabbit VX2 liver tumors by using conventional gray-scale ultrasonography (US), color/power Doppler (CD/PD) US, contrast-enhanced color Doppler (CE CD) US, and contrast-enhanced pulse-inversion harmonic (CE PIH) US.MethodsFourteen days after implantation of VX2 tumors in livers of 50 rabbits, animals were randomly separated into two groups. Based on principles of HIFU, the volume… CONTINUE READING
