Objective To observe the enhancement pattern of cervical cancer,and to investigate the potential usefulness of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography(CEUS) in the preoperative assessment.Methods Thirty patients with cervical cancer were examinated with CEUS.The enhanced patterns of the lesions were observed and the preoperative clinical staging were assessed.The results of CEUS were compared with those of conventional ultrasonography and pathology.Results The enhanced patterns in CEUS of cervical cancer were classified into four types:"synchronous","point-like or small pieces enhanced","block type" and "rapid proliferation of filling type".The coincidence rate of neoplasm staging of CEUS(21/30,70.00%) was significantly higher than that of trans-abdominal conventional ultrasound(12/30,40.00%)(P0.05).Conclusion CEUS is helpful in diagnosis of cervical cancer.It can provide better image data for clinical staging and treatment.
