Contrast Echocardiography

A contrast echocardiogram is a non-invasive cardiac test, which combines an echocardiogram (an ultrasound of the heart), and a substance called a contrast agent, which helps improve the quality of the images collected.

Contrast is used during an echocardiogram to see the flow of blood through the heart and the heart muscle more clearly. The contrast is administered by a technologist or nurse using an intravenous (IV) line.
