OBJECTIVES To determine the diagnostic value of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography, to differentiate benign and malignant soft-tissue tumors and to assess the feasibility and interest of modelling enhancement curves. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study includes 118 patients with soft-tissue tumors, examined with ultrasound after injection of SonoVue(®), a contrast product. The raw data were treated with CHI-Q acquisition software to model the enhancement curves. We analyzed tumor… CONTINUE READING
