In a retrospective study, there were 22 patients with RA undergoing CEUS with low MI, along with conventional B-mode ultrasound. And, CEUS did better than B-mode US, in differentiating synovitis and joint effusions, by demonstrating enhancement pattern of intra-articular vascularization in synovitis.[sup][43] Another research conducted by a group of German scientists, performed CEUS, PDUS, and conventional US in the patients of RA, and evaluated the efficacy of these methods, using MRI results as the standard.
