OBJECTIVE This was a dose-finding and effectiveness study of a newly developed contrast-enhancing agent, sulphur hexafluoride (SF(6)), in patients with peripheral arterial disease in whom the therapeutic policy could not be established on the basis of standard color-flow duplex scanning of the leg arteries. METHODS In this open-label, randomized, dose-ranging, crossover design, 14 patients in whom the assessment of vessel patency was difficult because of poor visibility (low-flow state) or… CONTINUE READING
