Voiding urosonography (VUS) using a microbubble contrast agent has been introduced as an alternative technique in the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). This study was undertaken to assess if phase inversion ultrasound (PIUS), a recent microbubble specific imaging technique, has advantages over fundamental in VUS and if it allows a reduction of contrast agent dose. Forty-three children with suspected VUR (aged 3 days–12 years, average of 3.9 years) with 92 kidney-ureter units (KUU) were… CONTINUE READING
