Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Demonstrate the ability of Definity® enhanced versus unenhanced echocardiography to improve the accuracy of left ventricular ejection fraction when compared to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a blinded assessment [ Time Frame: Following the completion of patient enrollment when the images (ultrasound and MR) were evaluated independently by three blinded readers. ]

Enrollment: 131
Study Start Date: July 2006
Study Completion Date: April 2008
Primary Completion Date: June 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Definity® Vial for (Perflutren Lipid Microsphere) Injectable Suspension
    The intervention for this study was that all patients received a slow bolus injection of diluted DEFINITY during the contrast-enhanced imaging study.
