Perfusion Imaging With Myocardial Contrast Echocardiography in HCM

The objective of this study is to determine whether myocardial contrast echocardiography in patients with cardiomyopathy (HCM) can detect resting hypo-perfusion due to fibrosis or stress induced perfusion defects due to associated abnormalities in intramyocardial arteries and the microcirculation. A secondary aim will be to determine whether abnormalities in perfusion are associated with either severity of symptoms (chest pain and dyspnea), presence of arrhythmias, and regional...

Maximal Bruce Protocol With the Use of Regadenoson For Myocardial Perfusion Stress Testing

It is been known for at least 20 years that the hemodynamic data, the amount of exercise performed as well as symptoms on the treadmill, has significant value to the perfusion stress testing. When a pharmacologic stress test is performed (and adenosine stress test over 4-6 minutes), this hemodynamic data is lost. Because of this loss of valuable data, it is felt that there is also a loss of significant prognostic data as well. With the advent and FDA release of Regadenoson in a...

Real Time Myocardial Contrast Echocardiography and Dobutamine Stress Perfusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The present study is designed to: 1. investigate the safety and efficacy of Real time myocardial echocardiography (RT-MCE) in adolescents and adults ages 13-40 with congenital and acquired congenital heart disease 2. compare RT-MCE with dobutamine stress perfusion MR for determination of coronary flow reserve and ventricular wall motion 3. assess regional myocardial mechanics using myocardial speckle tracking and MR tagging.

Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Apadenoson for Detection of Myocardial Perfusion Defects Using Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI)
