Myocardial perfusion contrast echocardiography is evolving into an effective method for the evaluation of myocardial blood flow after acute coronary events. The direct injection of ultrasound contrast agents into the aortic and coronary circulation has been shown to accurately identify areas of viable myocardial tissue. Recently, intravenous ultrasound contrast has been found to be useful in detecting microvascular blood flow after the restoration of blood flow in patients with myocardial infarction. We present the case of a patient in whom intravenous ultrasound contrast assisted in the detection of viable myocardial tissue after an acute ischemic syndrome.
