Left: Image during continuous low mechanical index imaging with continuous contrast infusion shows hypoperfused myocardium in the interventricular septum (dark) compared to lateral wall (bright from contrast). Right: After a high mechanical index burst with resulting contrast destruction, the replenishment of contrast is delayed in the septum, seen by an even larger difference in contrast enhancement between septum (darker myocardium, arrows) and lateral wall. Both images confirm hypoperfusion in the septum, probably due to coronary artery disease.

The apex remains more or less still. Due to these facts, there are normal differences in TDI velocities and displacement, with both velocity and displacement increasing from apex to base. Interpretation of regional TDI velocities is often difficult since the distinction of pathology from normal variation may be challenging. Ultrasound/echocardiography35 Load dependency TDI velocities are load dependent. When TDI is used for assessment of regional function however, this limitation is less important since regional differences persists with changes in load.

During real-time imaging, all the microbubbles can be intentionally totally destroyed by a “flash” of high MI ultrasound pulses and contrast replenishment from the continuous contrast infusion is then observed to allow qualitative and quantitative assessment of myocardial perfusion. There is less contrast needed than with intermittent high MI imaging. A disadvantage of low MI imaging is that the bubbles generate less acoustic signal, making the method less sensitive for contrast detection than high MI imaging.
