  • The advances made by ultrasonography in the last decade, in parallel with the development of ultrasound contrast agents, have opened a wide range of potential breakthroughs in the field of ultrasound imaging. SonoVue™ is a new echocontrast agent made of microbubbles stabilized by phospholipids and containing sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), an innocuous gas. The suspension of the microbubbles is stable over the time following reconstitution. The bubble concentration of SonoVue™ is between 100 and… CONTINUE READING
