PMID:  11175003     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
This preliminary experimental study demonstrates the potential usefulness of harmonic power Doppler imaging in producing left ventricular myocardial opacification and demonstrating intramyocardial coronary vessels during contrast echocardiography using Levovist, a saccharide-based contrast agent. The contrast effect was most dramatic when a vasodilator such as dipyridamole or nitroglycerin was used in conjunction with contrast injections of Levovist. No significant myocardial opacification was noted with B-mode harmonic imaging alone.
