|Overview||An experimental study performed on artificially injured pigs compared diagnostic sensitivity of 2D CEUS, 3D CEUS and 4D CEUS in the detection of bleeding in/of parenchymal organs. 4D CEUS allows better characterization of parenchymal bleeding lesions than 2D CEUS. Every CEUS exam was more sensitive than the non-contrasted US.
