ABSTRACT Background and Aims Kupffer-phase imaging visualized by Sonazoid distribution into normal liver tissues upon phagocytosis by Kupffer cells, potentially aids in improving liver metastasis detection compared with fundamental B-mode EUS (FB-EUS). However, the diagnostic performance of Kupffer-phase imaging in contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS (CH-EUS) remains unclear. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of CH-EUS-based Kupffer-phase imaging for diagnosing liver metastasis from ...

We recently introduced a series of articles that dealt with controversies in EUS. In Part I, the authors discussed which clinical information is necessary prior to EUS and whether other imaging modalities are required before embarking on EUS examinations. Part II focuses on technical details and controversies about the use of EUS in special situations. In this article, important practical issues regarding the application of contrast-enhanced EUS in various clinical settings are raised and contro...

Abstract The present, updated document describes the fourth iteration of recommendations for the hepatic use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound, first initiated in 2004 by the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology. The previous updated editions of the guidelines reflected changes in the available contrast agents and updated the guidelines not only for hepatic but also for non-hepatic applications. The 2012 guideline requires updating as, previously, the differences...

: Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States and compiles the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. Incidence data, available through 2015, were collected by the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program; the National Program of Cancer Registries; and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries. Mortality data, available through 2016, were collected by the Nati...

Background International guidelines of Ultrasound recommend the performance of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) as the first method of choice after conventional ultrasound for the diagnostic work-up of focal liver lesions. However, these recommendations are based on the results of multiple single studies and only few large multicentre studies. Aims The rationale of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to assess the overall sensitivity and specificity of CEUS for the diagnosis o...

p Since its introduction to clinical practice in the 1980s, EUS has been progressively used to stage and diagnose pancreaticobiliary and GI benign and malignant disorders. Comparison studies have shown that EUS is more accurate than transabdominal US, CT, and magnetic resonance imaging in the detection and staging of GI and extraluminal lesions.1-3 In addition, EUS-guided FNA (EUS-FNA) is a well-established technique allowing for tissue sampling whenever indicated.4 However, EUS presents a few l...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Distinguishing pancreatic adenocarcinoma from other pancreatic masses remains challenging with current imaging techniques. This prospective study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of a new procedure, imaging the microcirculation pattern of the pancreas by contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasound (CEH-EUS) with a new Olympus prototype echo endoscope. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 35 patients presenting with solid pancreatic lesions were prospectively enrolled. All patients...
