Title:
Assessment of disease activity in alveolar echinococcosis: a comparison of contrast-enhanced ultrasound, three-phase helical CT and [F-18]fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography 
Abstract:
Background: The objective of the present study was to assess activity or vascularization of focal liver lesions in alveolar echincoccosis using [F-18]fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography (FDG-PET) in comparison with contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and three-phase helical computed tomography (CT). Methods: In this prospective study, 17 patients with confirmed alveolar echinococcosis (AE) of the liver were included (6 males, 11 females; average age 59 +/- 16 years; average duratio...    »
