REVIEW | Effect of Intermittent High–Mechanical Index Impulses on Left Ventricular Strain

Endocardial border resolution can be improved by using Intermittent high–mechanical index (MI) impulses during ultrasound enhancing agent (UEA) infusion. In animal models, these high-MI impulses have been shown to also release adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for sustained periods of time......
