SonoVueÂ®-Enhanced Ultrasound (US) Versus Unenhanced US for Focal Liver Lesion Characterization
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the Sensitivity and Specificity of SonoVue®-enhanced ultrasound is superior to that of unenhanced ultrasound for the characterization of benign versus malignant FLLs using final diagnosis based on histology or combined imaging (CE-CT and/or CE MRI)/clinical data as truth standard.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Neoplasms By Site
A collective term for precoordinated organ/neoplasm headings locating neoplasms by organ, as BRAIN NEOPLASMS; DUODENAL NEOPLASMS; LIVER NEOPLASMS; etc.
Liver Neoplasms, Experimental
Experimentally induced tumors of the LIVER.
Tumors or cancer of the LIVER.
Cancers or tumors of the MAXILLA or MANDIBLE unspecified. For neoplasms of the maxilla, MAXILLARY NEOPLASMS is available and of the mandible, MANDIBULAR NEOPLASMS is available.
Spinal Cord Neoplasms
Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.
This is a phase III European multicenter, open label, prospective study to assess the diagnostic accuracy of the use of SonoVue contrast agent to guide prostate biopsies in comparison with...
This study is to investigate the safety of NS-9 and to see how well it is tolerated in patients with cancer that has metastasized (spread) to the liver from another primary tumor. NS-9 is...
A minority of patients with colorectal liver metastases and hepatobiliary cancer (primary liver cancer) are candidates for surgery, but there are no curative treatment options for these pa...
The aim of the study is to obtain information on FLT used in a PET-scan as a marker for the proliferation of colorectal liver metastases, so that the risk of recurrence can be identified i...
A study is being conducted by the University of Rochester Cancer Center (URCC) in which patients with liver cancer will be treated with high dose conformal radiation therapy. This type of...
PURPOSES: This study is aimed at evaluating diagnostic value of focal liver lesions (FLLs) with SonoVue(®)-enhanced ultrasound compared with contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and contrast-...
Genes could be used to treat atherosclerosis. The key problem is how to target a gene through the walls of arteries in free-flowing blood. TFPI-2 has been shown to suppress thrombosis and arterial re-...
Objectives The purpose of this study was to quantitatively assess the contrast kinetics of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2)-targeted microbubbles (BR55; Bracco Suisse, Geneva, Sw...
Ultrasound-based technologies are competing more and more success-fully against computerized tomography and magnetic resonance based imaging procedures. This thanks to technological improvements as we...
