Abstract

The usefulness of contrast-enhanced harmonic power Doppler ultrasound (US) in evaluating the therapeutic response of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is investigated. Dual-phase spiral CT and contrast-enhanced dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging are performed to establish the outcome of therapy. Twenty-eight of the 38 lesions underwent additional treatment with percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) by targeting the areas of residual tumor with contrast-enhanced harmonic power Doppler US guidance. Contrast-enhanced harmonic power Doppler US proved useful for assessing the therapeutic effect of TACE on HCC and may be used to target additional treatment with PEI in cases of partial response.
