Assessment of myocardial perfusion by power contrast imaging using a new echo contrast agent

Academic Article


  • In a patient with previously documented myocardial infarction, we assessed myocardial perfusion by using power contrast imaging and a newer intravenous echo contrast agent. The images were captured and stored digitally, and various image processing algorithms were used to assess myocardial perfusion. An apical perfusion defect was clearly visualized, and it correlated with radionuclide findings.
