Abstract

Intravenous newer generation perfluorocarbon containing microbubbles have been shown to enhance endocardial borders, especially during harmonic imaging. Although this significantly improves the detection of wall-motion abnormalities during stress echocardiography, intermittent imaging consistently results in myocardial contrast following intravenous infusions or injections of perfluorocarbon microbubbles. Detection of myocardial perfusion abnormalities during both exercise and pharmacologic stress echocardiography appears to be feasible clinically with either intravenous injections or continuous infusions of microbubbles using intermittent harmonic imaging. Accelerated intermittent harmonic imaging allows one to rapidly acquire both myocardial perfusion and wall motion during exercise and dobutamine stress echocardiography.
