Many studies also have associated the peak vessel density as measured by MVD with a poor prognosis in NSCLC (Macchiarini et al. 1992; Yamazaki et al. 1994; Fontanini et al. 1995; Angeletti et al. 1996; Giatromanolaki et al. 1996; Harpole et al. 1996; Kawaguchi et al. 1997; Fontanini et al. 1997; Matsuyama et al. 1998; Duarte et al. 1998; Yuan et al. 2000; Cox et al. 2000; O’Byrne et al.

Still, the resolution of ultrasound, and the reduced blood velocity in smaller arterioles and capillaries mean that flow in these vessels is not measured by this technique. In addition, bulk tissue movements that produce artifacts can be a problem in some organs such as lung (Eriksson et al. 1991). Imaging tumors that are surrounded by aerated lung is also technically difficult. Finally, poor accessibility to anatomical areas for deep seated tumors, and operator dependence remain challenges for use of these ultrasound methodologies.
