Grundlagen der kontrastverstärkten Echokardiografie

  • Andreas Helfen
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Die Anwendung von Ultraschallkontrastmitteln ist in den Richtlinien zur Weiterbildung Kardiologie sowie in den Leitlinien zur echokardiografischen Bildgebung fest verankert. Wir unterscheiden nicht lungengängige Rechtsherzkontrastmittel und lungengängige Linksherzkontrastmittel. Eine erfolgreiche Kontrastechokardiografie erfordert Kenntnisse zu den verschiedenen Kontrastmitteln und deren Indikationen, sowie zu den anzupassenden Geräteparametern, wie dem mechanischen Index.
