ABSTRACT
Objective To evaluate the value of contrast-enhanced uhrasound(CEUS)for liver fibrosis.Methods Ninty-two chronic hepatitis B patients with histology diagnosis and fifteen health control were detected by CEUS,dynamic images and the time-intensity curve were analyed.Results Hepatic veinartery transit(HV-ATT)became shorter in the early hepatic cirrhosis patients [(7.5±2.1)s]compared to the control[(11.8±2.7)s].However,there was no difference between the fibrosis patients [(13.0±2.2)s]and the control.Furthermore,HV-ATT of the fibrosis patients with S1 to S3 stage were(11.7±2.7)s(S1),(11.8±3.0)S(S2),(11.8±2.3)s(S3)without significant difference.Conclusions CEUS is valuable in diagnosing earlier hepatic cirrhosis,but not fibrosis.
