Albunex is an intravenous contrast agent that opacifies the left ventricle (LV). This study evaluated the effect of Albunex on the enhancement of LV endocardial border localization during dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE). Albunex was infused in 30 patients at baseline and with low- and high-dosage dobutamine. Apical two- and four-chamber views were divided into six segments each, and enhancement of LV border localization was compared with precontrast images graded as follows: 0 = none… CONTINUE READING
