Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Frequency of Serious Adverse Reactions (SAR)'s Among Subjects Who Receive Optison (Causally Related to the Product)During Contrast Enhanced Echocardiography in Routine Clinical Practice. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours post contrast administration ]
    A Serious Adverse Reaction or (SAR) is considered causally related to the Optison product administered by the investigator. This reaction, should it occur, will be counted as a serious adverse reaction.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Frequency of Overall Serious Adverse Events (SAE's) Among Subjects Who Receive Optison (Whether Related to the Product or Not) During Contrast Enhanced Echocardiography in Routine Clinical Practice. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours post contrast administration ]
    The frequency of any serious adverse event (SAE) whether it is related to the Optison product or not, after the administration of the Optison product during contrast enhanced echocardiography.

Drug: Perflutren Protein-Type A Microspheres Injectable Suspension, United States Pharmacopeia (USP)

The recommended dose of Optison is 0.5mL injected into a peripheral vein. This may be repeated for further contrast enhancement as needed.

The injection rate should not exceed 1mL per second. Follow the Optison injection with a flush of 0.9% sodium chloride injection, USP or 5% dextrose in water injection, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) .

The maximum total dose should not exceed 5.0mL in any 10 minutes period. The maximum total dose should not exceed 8.7mL in any one patient study.
