Conclusion

  • Ultrasound guidance is at times handicapped partly by lack of confident identification of lesion during ablation otherwise well seen on cross sectional imaging modalities and partly by deciding the  end point of ablation merely on US due to difficulty in incorporating immediate time consuming post ablation PET or CECT. This confusion can be minimised using real-time contrast US & fusion imaging
  • Contrast harmonic sonography guided RFA has better ablation rate after a single treatment session.
  • Fusion imaging using prior CT/MR data increases speed of detection of lesion and precise targeting.
  • Both these techniques makes ultrasound a even  better tool in difficult cases.
  • Raised S. creatinine is not a problem for CEUS
  • For multiple lesions Contrast Quantification is possible on CEUS.
