Contrast‐Enhanced Ultrasound for the Assessment of Pancreatic Lesions
Challenges in Pancreatic Pathology
Transabdominal ultrasound (US) is the first-line imaging method used to diagnose pancreatic lesions, but contrast techniques are needed to differentiate among inflammatory and malignant lesions, as well as between pseudocysts and cystic tumors. Contrast-enhanced (CE) ultrasonography has been proven to be a useful tool in this regard with performance similar to contrast-enhanced computer tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (CT/MRI), being also safer and nonirradiant.
