Echocardiographic contrast in two-dimensional echocardiography: new applications for an old technique?

Echocardiography
C W Christensen, W C Reeves

Abstract

Although Gramiak and Shah first introduced the technique of using contrast enhanced two-dimensional echocardiography in 1968, it has seen a resurgence of new and varied applications. Three of the areas of interest are in the use of microbubble enhanced contrast agents to evaluate: (1) regional myocardial blood flow; (2) regional myocardial function; and (3) myocardial ischemic areas and infarct size. Whether these new approaches will have applications and value in the clinical laboratory is still a matter of conjecture. The objective of this review is to briefly summarize the potential uses and the advantages and disadvantages of each application.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
