Apical Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
Upper panel from an echo in Jan 2010 using a system without a dedicated contrast preset, the contrast acquisition was done simply by lowering the MI, the contrast image is diagnostic but clearly lacking the quality of the contrast image in the lower panel (Feb 2011) from the same patient using a low-MI contrast presetting. In the latter one can clearly get more information; a small apical aneurysm and decreased endocardial perfusion is apparent.
