Hepatic transit time of an echo enhancer: an indicator of metastatic spread to the liver.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Can sonographic measurements of the transit time of an echo enhancer from the hepatic artery to the hepatic vein discriminate between patients with and without liver metastases? METHOD The hepatic transit time (hepatic artery to hepatic vein delay) of an echo enhancer (Optison) was measured in pulse inversion mode on the basis of time intensity… (More)
