Abstract

The demonstration or exclusion of tumour infiltration into a vessel wall is made possible by IVUS. This was performed 25 times in 23 patients using a 20 MHz probe where there was suspicion of tumour infiltration on the basis of CT, MRI or angiography. IVUS proved very suitable for clarifying the situation, making direct intravascular evaluation of the affected vessel possible. In 10 cases where surgery was performed, the demonstration or exclusion of tumour infiltration into a vein was confirmed operatively in every case. Further experience is necessary before the value of the method for diagnosing early arterial infiltration can be judged.
