Aims To analyze potential contrast media for a new diagnostic method having merits of both sialography and sonography.
Methods Saline and various contrast media (Urografin 76% ; 100%, 90%, and 67% Lipiodol Ultra-Fluide ; 67% Lipiodol Ultra-Fluide with emulsifier ; 5% and 1% barium sulfate ; and Levovist) were injected into thin tubes (0.5mm and 0.25mm diameter) at about 0.001 - 0.1 ml/sec. Ultrasonography was performed with a diagnostic ultrasound imaging system (Squoia 512, Acuson Co, USA) and the pulsed Doppler imaging was obtained, All images were transferred to a personal computer and analyzed with an image processing software, NIH Image. A rectangular region of interest (ROI) was selected in a pulsed image and the sum of the gray-levels of all pixels in the ROI was calculated for representing Doppler signal intensities. The relationship between Doppler signal intensity and the kind, concentration and velocity of the fluid were analyzed.
Results Levovist, 90% and 67% Lipiodol Ultra-Fluide, and the barium sulfate solutions produced Doppler signals. The mixture of Lipiodol Ultra-Fluide and saline showed high signals at any concentration in contrast to the barium sulfate solutions. Signals could be observed at any speed, from the speed of normal sialography down to 0.001 ml/sec, and there was a proportional relationship between signal intensity and velocity for all fluids producing signals.
Conclusions As we could obtain high signals with several fluids, the diagnostic usefulness of sialographic sonography should be assessed clinically.
