Denne artikkelen gir generelle råd i bruken av kontrast for å ta kliniske avgjørelser under ultralyd.

Abstract

“How to perform contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)” provides
general advice on the use of ultrasound contrast agents
(UCAs) for clinical decision-making and reviews technical parameters
for optimal CEUS performance. CEUS techniques vary
between centers, therefore, experts from EFSUMB, WFUMB
and from the CEUS LI-RADS working group created a discussion
forum to standardize the CEUS examination technique according
to published evidence and best personal experience. The
goal is to standardise the use and administration of UCAs to
facilitate correct diagnoses and ultimately to improve the management
and outcomes of patients.
