The purpose of this study was to monitor liver metastases after radiotherapy using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). In 15 patients, follow-up examinations after stereotactic, single-dose radiotherapy were performed using CEUS (low mechanical index (MI), 2.4-ml SonoVue) and computed tomography (CT). Besides tumor size, the enhancement of the liver and the metastases was assessed at the arterial, portal venous, and delayed phases. The sizes of the tumor and of a perifocal liver reaction after… CONTINUE READING
