Abstract

Microbubbles produced by sonication of a meglumine diatrizoate-sodium solution pass through the capillaries of rabbit cremasteric muscle without visual evidence of sludging, and with a speed similar to that reported for red blood cells. These observations constitute further evidence that sonicated meglumine diatrizoate-sodium solution may be safe for use in echocardiographically monitored myocardial perfusion studies.
