High BMI and fatty liver increase challenges for optimal body imaging, especially for ultrasound (US). With conventional equipment, penetration and imaging at depth is a major technical limitation in Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) exams, often resulting in inconclusive results or additional follow-up to other imaging modalities. 

This presentation compares attributes such as penetration, bubble life duration, bubble sensitivity, and lesion characterization between standard ultrasound probes versus the Deep Abdominal Transducer (DAX). Join us as we share our results and solution to overcome issues of penetration at depth in CEUS with high diagnostic accuracy creating significant quality improvement impacting management, diagnosis, and treatment. 

The DAX probe is a game-changer!
