Contrast-enhanced Ultrasound for Follow-up After Radiofrequency Ablation of Renal Lesions: a Prospective, Blinded Study
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Screening
Sensitivity value of CEUS for tumour recurrence and by comparing to the standard CT/MRI.
The accuracy of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in monitoring renal lesions post-radiofrequency ablation will be assessed through sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value of CEUS for tumour recurrence and by comparing to the standard CT/ MRI.
3 months post radiofrequency ablation procedure.
