Abstract

Quantitative contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging has the potential to advance methods of cancer diagnosis and treatment by providing clinicians more suitable benchmarks for monitoring tumor perfusion and response to cancer therapies. In this chapter, we describe the basic methods of how quantitative CEUS imaging is performed in tumors with the use of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) and discuss the challenges that still need to be overcome to fully realize the potential of CEUS imaging in a cancer therapy.
