ABSTRACT:
Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is the application of ultrasound contrast agents to traditional medical sonography Ultrasound contrast agents are gas-filled micro-bubbles that are administered intravenously to the systemic circulation. The field of Contrast-enhanced ultrasound is expanding rapidly with exciting new applications. While ultrasound contrast agents were initially used to overcome insufficient transcranial bone windows for identification of the basal cerebral arteries, new-generation micro-bubbles in combination with very sensitive contrast-specific ultrasound techniques now enable real-time visualization of stroke. This article will provide a review of recent and emerging developments in ultrasound technology and contrast-specific imaging techniques.
KEYWORDS:
Contrast-enhanced ultrasound, ultrasound contrast agents.
