Agent Detection Imaging (ADI) (Acuson Sequoia 512)

  • Masatoshi Kudo


The contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (US) study with intravenous administration of a contrast agent should be performed with the optimal technique under careful consideration of the characteristics of the contrast agent. In this chapter, we describe the contrast-imaging method using Levovist, the only contrast agent that has been approved under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law in Japan.
