Perfusion imaging in a 3D volume using ultrasound contrast agent may improve vascular characterization compared with 2D imaging. Conventional 3D acquisition requires excessive scan time. A dual transducer technique using conventional systems has been introduced that allows 3D imaging of contrast dynamics with drastically reduced scan times (LeCarpentier et al. 2003). Two transducers are translated across a volume where the leading transducer effects contrast clearance and the following… CONTINUE READING
