Zusammenfassung

Das fließende Blut reflektiert nur sehr wenig Ultraschall. Es hat eine niedrige Echogenität und ist dementsprechend in der Echokardiographie dann auch echoarm, d. h. schwarz abgebildet. Echokontrastmittel sind Trägerlösungen mit Ultraschall reflektierenden Bestandteilen, zumeist kleinsten Luftbläschen. Ihre Wirkung zeigt sich als echogene Markierung des Blutstromes. Dies führt zu einer echoreichen Abbildung der Lumina sowie in schwächerem Maße des Myokards und davon abgeleitet auch zu einer verbesserten Endokarderkennung.
