Abstract provided by Publisher
 
Objectives: To investigate the effect of contrast enhanced
ultrasonography in examination of liver metastases
Materials and methods: Totally 13 metastatic liver lesions
were examined in 13 cases. These lesions were examined
by dynamic contrast enhanced ultrasonography
with Levovist 2.5/4 gr. flk (contrast agent that contains galactose
and palmitic acid). Vascular phase (arterial-portal)
and parenchymal phase enhancement patterns were investigated
in these lesions.
Results: The sensitivity and specifity of vascular phase
enhancement and later phase perfusion defect in these
lesions were found as %76.92 and %100 respectively.
Conclusion: Dynamic contrast enhanced ultrasonography
is an effective method in characterization of liver
metastases.
