Contrast Echocardiography

Contrast echocardiography, or Contrast-enhanced ultrasound is the addition of ultrasound contrast medium, or imaging agent, to traditional ultrasonography. The ultrasound contrast is made up of tiny microbubbles filled with a gas core and protein shell. This allows the microbubbles to circulate through the cardiovascular system and return the ultrasound waves creating a highly reflective image. The most commonly used types of ultrasound contrast are known as Definity (definityimaging.com) and Optison (optisonimaging.com). Both have been approved by the FDA. There are multiple applications in which contrast-enhanced ultrasound can be useful. The most commonly used application is in the enhancement of LV endocardial borders for assessment of global and regional systolic function. Contrast may also be used to enhance visualization of wall thickening during stress echocardiography, for the assessment of LV thrombus, or for the assessment of other masses in the heart. Contrast echocardiography has also been used to assess blood perfusion throughout myocardium in the case of coronary artery disease. The Contrast Echo Box developed by the European Association of Echocardiography, and the American Society of Echocardiography Contrast Zone both offer a complete review of Contrast Echocardiography.

Contrast echocardiography is a technique for improving echocardiographic resolution and providing real time assessment of intra cardiac blood flow. Agitated saline contrast provides contrast in the right heart and enables detection of right to left shunts.it records . he position and motion of the heart walls or internal structures of the heart and neighboring tissue by the echo obtained from beams of ultrasonic waves directed through the chest wall.it is useful to Demonstrate the situation. In this liquied is used for understanding function of heart  Used for the diagnosis of myocardial infractionhttp://echocardiography.conferenceseries.com/call-for-abstracts.php, coronary artery disease etc. contrast echocardiography technique is used for improvement of echocardiographic resolution and helps in the Intra cardiac blood flow. As sound travels from one medium to another, the change in density (known as acoustic impedance) at the interface causes the reflection of sound waves. Gas is an good agent.
