Overall Goal: Teach through engaging the audience in case study reviews a variety of patient types that had suboptimal echocardiograms and how Optison (Perflutren Protein-Type A Microspheres Injectable Suspension, USP) was instrumental in opacifying the left ventricle and delineating endocardial borders.
Objectives: At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to: Identify various types of patients for whom Optison was helpful for better visualization of the left ventricle: Discuss an Optison case and why Optison was utilized to help visualize the left ventricle in a patient who had COVID, Assess your visualization skills pre- and post-Optison enhancement

Most serious reactions occur within 30 minutes of administration. Assess all patients for the presence of any condition that precludes OPTISON administration. Always have resuscitation equipment and trained personnel readily available.
