Lumason (Sonovue) for abdominal imaging

With the recent FDA approval of Lumason (Sonovue), we seem to now have a third option for CEUS.  Is anyone planning to switch agents?My interest is primarily abdominal imaging.  I understand Sonovue is very popular in Europe and Asia for these applications but I haven't yet seen any data showing diagnostic advantage over Definity or Optison. Does anyone have any experience with this?Thanks,Rob BourUniversity of Wisconsin RadiologySee More

"Hi, We also recently unlocked the contrast mode for off-label abdominal use on a GE Logiq E9 without an IRB study.  There was a fee, unfortunately. Good luck! Rob Bour University of Wisconsin Abdominal Imaging Fellow"
