Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) is a relatively novel, but increasingly used, diagnostic imaging modality. In recent years, due to its safety, low cost, quickness and repeatability, several studies have been published demonstrating the accuracy, specificity and sensitivity of CEUS. European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) has recently updated the previous guidelines of 2012 for CEUS use in non-hepatic applications. This review deals with the clinical use and applications of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for the evaluation of non-hepatic abdominal organs focusing on renal, splenic and pancreatic applications.
