Objective: The therapeutic response of radio-frequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was evaluated by contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (US) using a new contrast mode, agent detection imaging (ADI), and its usefulness was compared with that of dynamic computed tomography (CT). Materials and methods: Forty patients with 64 nodules diagnosed as HCC histologically and/or by various imaging modalities were evaluated with ADI (1 and 7 days after treatment) and Dynamic CT (7 days… Expand
