BACKGROUND Echo-enhanced power Doppler sonography (power Doppler sonography after injection of a contrast agent) is a non-invasive and increasingly used procedure for differentiating between pancreatic tumours. However, the diagnostic accuracy of this method compared to conventional ultrasound or unenhanced power Doppler sonography has never been investigated in a large prospective controlled study. METHODS 137 patients were included in the study, selected from 190 consecutive patients with a… CONTINUE READING
