BACKGROUND Real-time (RT) myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a novel method for assessment of regional myocardial perfusion. We sought to evaluate the feasibility and diagnostic accuracy of quantitative adenosine RT MCE in predicting significant coronary stenoses, with reference to quantitative coronary angiography. METHODS Low-power RT MCE was performed in 43 patients scheduled for quantitative coronary angiography. Peak signal intensity (A), rate of signal intensity increase… CONTINUE READING
