Abstract

Objective. The purpose of this article is to review the general principles, technique, and clinical applications of contrast-enhanced ultrasound of the liver. CONCLUSION. Proper technique and optimization of contrast-enhanced ultrasound require a balance between maintaining the integrity of the microbubble contrast agent and preserving the ultrasound signal. Established and emerging applications in the liver include diagnosis of focal lesions, aiding ultrasound-guided intervention, monitoring of therapy, and aiding surgical management.
