Echocardiography (Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Cardiology) (2 ed.) Paul Leeson, Daniel Augustine, Andrew R.J. Mitchell, and Harald Becher. Abstract. Echocardiography uses ultrasound waves to generate images of cardiovascular structures and to display information regarding the blood flow through these. Edited by Leda Galiuto, Luigi Badano, Kevin Fox, Rosa Sicari, and Jose Luis Zamorano. A newer edition of The EAE Textbook of Echocardiography is available. The EAE Textbook of Echocardiography is the official textbook of the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE).

This is particularly helpful in stress echocardiography.
Reduced opacification in the subendocardial layers usually indicates reduced perfusion and is often easier to appreciate than a new wall motion abnormality, as well as allowing earlier identification of such abnormalities see Figure 1.
For rest echocardiography the assessment of myocardial opacification is also very helpful. In an akinetic segment, the lack of myocardial opacification indicates viability.
Thrombi can be distinguished from tumours by the degree of opacification. Contrast Application Is Useful Only if it Alters Patient Management The threshold for ultrasound examinations is usually very low and the results of the examinations do not always affect patient management.
Considering the extra time, additional costs and small risk of intolerance, contrast echocardiography requires a more disciplined approach.
There are many patients in whom echocardiographic images are not optimal; nevertheless, echocardiography still provides the correct answers to clinical questions.
According to the American Society of Echocardiography ASE guidelines, there is an indication for contrast echocardiography when the endocardial border definition is poor in two or more segments.
In some patients, poor visualisation of two myocardial segments may change management, while in others this may not be the case. For instance, in a year-old patient with severe aortic valve stenosis, poor delineation of three LV segments may impair the measurement of LV function, but further management — coronary angiography and valve replacement — is not affected.
Stress echo examinations represent a different scenario. For this kind of examination, image quality is crucial; suboptimal images of the LV cannot be accepted.
Therefore, high image quality is vital. In these patients, contrast administration is of great importance in delineating the endocardial border in all segments, thus changing patient management.
These considerations are reflected in the most recent published guidelines of the British Society of Echocardiography BSE and the ASE for the clinical application of stress echocardiography.
In rest echocardiography, contrast echocardiography is useful when minor changes of LV volumes and ejection fraction change patient management.
Monitoring of LV function during treatment with cardiotoxic drugs such as Herceptin is a good example of the need for accurate assessment of LV function. In patients with poor acoustic windows the reproducibility of contrast-enhanced studies is comparable to that of magnetic resonance imaging MRI recordings.
Safety of Contrast Echocardiography Side effects have been reported for ultrasound contrast agents, but they are usually mild. However, rare allergic — potentially life-threatening — reactions may occur and investigators have to be prepared for such an event.
Data collected during post-marketing surveillance of more than , SonoVue vials indicate that serious adverse events SAEs are rare 0. The signs and symptoms of most of these SAEs indicate an underlying allergy-like mechanism, and were considered by the European Medicines Agency EMEA in the context of idiosyncratic hypersensitivity reactions. This kind of reaction allergy-like is well known from wide reports in the literature to occur with other medical imaging agents such as X-ray or MRI contrast media.

It serves the educational requirements of cardiologists and all clinical medical professionals, underpinning the structural training in the field in accordance with EAE aims and goals, and reflecting the EAE Core Syllabus. Now in its second edition, and reflecting the most recent international cardiology and echocaridography society guidelines, the handbook has been extensively updated throughout and features new sections covering 3D echocardiography, intracardiac echocardiography, contrast echocardiography, speckle tracking echocardiography and emergency echocardiography.
