OBJECTIVE We evaluated the sensitivity and specificity of power Doppler sonography compared with conventional color Doppler sonography and gray-scale sonography in diagnosing patients with acute cholecystitis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Seventy-six patients with right upper quadrant pain and 72 healthy volunteers underwent gray-scale sonography, conventional color Doppler sonography, and power Doppler sonography of the gallbladder. The vascularity of the gallbladder wall was scored on a scale of 0… CONTINUE READING
