|Recommendation/Comment||We have to be aware of the possibility to perform some procedures under CEUS guidance instead of using radiation or administering contrast agents by radiological procedures.|
|Clinical implication||CEUS may allow performing some procedures bedside without the need of transporting the patient to another department, without renal toxicity of contrast agent and with direct postprocedural controls also bedside.|
|Ultrasound speciality||Contrast sonography, Musculoskeletal sonography – orthopaedics and traumatology|
