OBJECTIVE To assess the findings of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) of carotid arteries in patients with large vessel vasculitis (LVV) and to compare them with those observed using 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (18 FDG-PET). METHODS A total of 31 consecutive patients with LVV (14 with Takayasu arteritis, 17 with giant cell arteritis with large vessel involvement) underwent both PET/computed tomography and carotid artery color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) for a total of… CONTINUE READING
