Abstract

The value of contrast enhancement pattern at harmonic power Doppler imaging in the assessment of tumor vascularity of hepatocellular lesions is investigated. The Doppler US examination is performed by injecting bolus of a microbubble contrast agent and by performing continuous imaging of the lesion, in the harmonic power Doppler mode for 5 minutes. The evaluation of the enhancement pattern in harmonic power Doppler imaging is a valuable noninvasive means for investigating tumor vascularity in hepatocellular lesions.
