PURPOSE To assess the added value of depicting tumour microvascularisation, using dynamic contrast enhanced (CEUS), during radiofrequency ablation, as a means of achieving a complete ablation (CA) of malignant liver lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS 18 consecutive patients (2 female, 16 male, age range 52-79 years, mean 64.1 ± 9.9 years) with 22 histologically confirmed hepatic malignancies (HCC: n = 10, liver metastases: n = 12) underwent RFA. Before RFA treatment, conventional US, CEUS and… CONTINUE READING
