Conventional and contrast-enhanced ultrasound assessment of craniocerebral gunshot wounds

D. Deng, Dan, G., Tao, J., Wu, X. - B., Chen, Z., Chang, M., Liao, M. - S., and He, F., Conventional and contrast-enhanced ultrasound assessment of craniocerebral gunshot wounds, vol. 14, pp. 3345-3354, 2015.

This study aimed to investigate the characteristic features of craniocerebral gunshot wounds by conventional ultrasound (CUS) and evaluate the efficacy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in differentiation of tissue condition in wounds. Twenty crossbreed dogs (treatment: N = 15; control: N = 5) were used in the study. Pipe-shaped hyperechoes of varying size were found by CUS in most of the treated animals. The echoic areas were distinct from the neighboring brain tissue and did not change with time.
