AIMS The performance of percutaneous echo-guided biopsy in the hepatic tumoral diagnosis is limited (90% sensitivity) by several factors, among which tumor characteristics (type, size, and location) play an important role. Contrast enhanced ultrasound guided percutaneous biopsy (CEUS-PLB) is a new developed technique aimed at increasing the accuracy of percutaneous biopsies. The objective of our study was to evaluate the feasibility and performance of CEUS as a guiding method in performing… CONTINUE READING
