Application of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) in Lymphomatous Lymph Nodes: A Comparison between PET/CT and Contrast-Enhanced CT

Table 1

Criteria of the imaging method including CEUS, contrast-enhanced CT, and PET/CT to diagnose the malignant lymphomatous nodes.

Imaging modalitiesCriteria for diagnosis of lymphomatous lymph nodes

CEUSRapid well-distributed hyperenhancement lymph nodes
Rapid heterogeneous hyperenhancement lymph nodes

PET/CTPositive lesion shown as focal or diffuse FDG uptake above background in a location incompatible with normal anatomy or physiology without a specific SUV cutoff
SUVmax > 14 informs the lymph nodes had transformed, whereas those with SUVmax < 14 do not

Contrast-enhanced CTMaximum diameter is ≥10 mm, and minimum diameter is ≥6 mm
Central area of neuroses
Margins are blurred
The target metastasis lymph nodes have special reinforcement
