Description

Although contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has become a widely utilized and accepted modality in much of the world, the associated contrast agents have only recently received approval in the United States. As with all radiological techniques, image artifacts are encountered in CEUS, some of which relate to commonly encountered ultrasound artifacts, while others are unique to this technique. Image artifacts must be recognized when performing and interpreting examinations to improve technique and diagnostic accuracy. In this article, we review artifacts that may be encountered in CEUS, and where possible discuss how to minimize them or mitigate their effect on image quality and interpretation.
