OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate contrast-enhanced Doppler sonography with perfusion software as a predictor of early tumor response to imatinib (Glivec) in c-kit-positive gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirty patients (59 tumors) with metastases or a recurrence from a GIST were prospectively included in a single-center imaging trial. Contrast-enhanced Doppler sonography was performed with an Aplio scanner the day before (day-1) starting oral… CONTINUE READING
