Abstract

Although developed as an echocardiographic contrast agent, Albunex will have utility in various noncardiac applications. The ability of Albunex to detect patency of the fallopian tubes and vesicoureteral reflux, in the absence of large doses of ionizing radiation, should prove to be a significant clinical advancement. Albunex may help to improve ultrasonic detection of venous thrombi that may normally prove difficult to detect. Finally, the ability of Albunex to enhance the color Doppler signal may prove useful in the diagnosis of a number of disease states characterized by altered blood flow in organs, such as the kidney.
