Abstract

Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) has become an extremely useful adjunct to conventional ultrasound, and in many clinical situations it may replace or obviate the need for CT or MRI. Its use in developed countries has been variable, but it is suggested that in developing countries where CT and MRI have more limited availability, CEUS has great potential. This article explains why the author believes this to be the case, introduces the technique and describes the clinical roles to which CEUS may be applied.
