ABSTRACT
For evaluating unclear tumorous lesions, CEUS is an important imaging modality next to contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and may provide valuable insights into the microvascularization of tumors through its dynamic examination. In interventional procedures, CEUS can make a valuable contribution in pre-, peri- and post-interventional settings, reduce radiation exposure and, under certain circumstances, the number of interventions for the patient.
