European Journal of Ultrasound – 2/2019
Klaus Dirks et al.
In patients with acute appendicitis, preoperative sonography has been established as a routine procedure in most European countries for medical and legal reasons. Routine sonography in these patients may reduce the rate of unnecessary surgery by half. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of ultrasound reach values above 90% and are equivalent to CT and MRI. However, the higher operator dependence may be a problem, e.g. in point-of-care ultrasound in emergency departments. Structured training programs, quality controls and standardized ultrasound reporting should be increasingly emplemented.

This prospective study included 41 patients with breast cancer. CEUS was performed before and after the first cycle of NAC. TIC parameters were analyzed for different regions of interest (ROIs). ROI 1 targeted the hotspot area of greatest enhancement, ROI 2 delineated the area of hyperenhancement, ROI 2 included the entire tumor on grayscale ultrasound, and ROI 4 encircled the normal parenchyma. The TIC perfusion values for ROI 1, 2, 3 were divided by the ROI 4 value.

FLLs who underwent liver surgery between 08/2015 - 06/2017 were prospectively acquired and retrospectively analyzed. Intraoperative CEUS and SWE are excellent tools for the highly accurate visualization, characterization and malignancy assessment of hepatic tumors during liver surgery.
