Ultrasound examinations are performed within almost all medical specialties and are of paramount value in clinical medicine and as research tools. Diagnostic ultrasound as well as ultrasound guidance for biopsy, drainage and tumor ablation has become an integral part of the clinical setting. The last ten years have seen an increase in new ultrasound techniques like contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), elastography techniques, 3D ultrasound, image fusion with ultrasound and methods for flow visualization like vector Doppler. On the technical aspect also transducer technology has evolved tremendously. This special issue invites submission of both original and review papers, technical as well as clinical papers within all aspects of ultrasound imaging.
