Clinical Applications of Ultrasonic Enhancing Agents in Echocardiography: 2018 American Society of Echocardiography Guidelines Update

This has been accompanied by the removal and/or reductions of prior contraindications to use and the provision of new clinical data to support use in pediatrics as well as nonapproved indications such as MP imaging and therapeutic thrombolysis.
