PurposeTo retrospectively evaluate the dynamic enhancement pattern of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) of varying sizes and hepatic backgrounds.Materials and methodsCEUS was performed in 98 pathologically confirmed ICCs (n = 39 < 30 mm, n = 59 > 30 mm; n = 45 with cirrhosis and n = 53 with normal liver). The dynamic enhancement pattern of CEUS was retrospectively analyzed.ResultsIn the arterial phase, heterogeneous hyper-enhancement was more frequent… CONTINUE READING
