  • Dynamic contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (DCEUS) using the contrast agent Sonovue and vascular recognition imaging software is a novel technique that enables the detection of microvessels and quantitative assessment of solid tumor perfusion using raw linear data. Clinical trials have shown that DCE-US can be used to assess the anticancer efficacy of antiangiogenic treatment, for which conventional efficacy criteria based on size are unsuitable. Reduction in tumor vascularization can easily be… CONTINUE READING
