Abstract
The availability of contrast agents to enhance ultrasound imaging of blood flow has resulted in applications not only in echocardiography but in peripheral organs such as the prostate as well. Especially the association of tumor development with changes in blood flow patterns has a potential to improve differential diagnosis. Theoretical modeling of the behavior of contrast bubbles after injection can be used to increase the understanding of the images of prostatic blood supply resulting after enhancement. This knowledge might assist in the development of sophisticated software for objective interpretation of the improved blood flow display.
