Vascularity and Hemodynamics of Liver Tumors as Seen with Intraarterial Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography
To perform contrast harmonic imaging of liver tumors and to evaluate the results correctly, one must understand tumor vascularity and hemodynamics. This chapter, therefore, describes tumor vascularity based on intraarterial contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (US), which is the gold standard for harmonic imaging.
