To assess the efficacy of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) with Sonovue in the evaluation of therapeutic response to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In a recent 3 years, 63 patients (mean age, 60 years; range 26–81 years) with 64 RCCs were treated by RFA. The lesions had a diameter between 1.8 and 9.8 cm (average diameter, 3.1 cm). The indications for RFA treatment included chronic renal insufficiency (n = 10), presence of solitary kidney (n =3), bilateral… CONTINUE READING
