Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) uses special software and mico-bubbles to enhance lesions to provide additional information that is not otherwise obtainable. The Micro-bubbles that is used is called Lumason, and is FDA approved for Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound. It is readily available, widely used, and is in use within the VA. Unlike CT and X-ray, CEUS does not use any radiation. Therefore, CEUS does not need to use x-ray absorbing contrast material to highlight areas of interest. Unlike MRI, CEUS does not contain any heavy metals, or use contrast where the patient might develop a reaction. CEUS allows patients who are not candidates for CT or MRI contrast Imaging due to such factors as compromised kidneys or claustrophobic, to have contrast exam with much higher resolution but without the hazards and weakness of other modalities.3.?
