Description

In order to get good visualization of the RV, Intravenous Definity (brand name echo contrast material) was required.  Here is the cardiac ultrasound. The orange colored area is the Definity contrast in the chambers of the heart.  The RV is on the left (circled below).  This shows very poor RV function except at the apex (arrow below).


This is known as McConnell's sign, and is described for Pulmonary Embolism; here we see it in right ventricular MI.
