A good contrast echocardiographic study enhances the safety and efficacy of alcohol ablation procedures. Newer generation echocardiographic contrast agents and conventional radiographic contrast agents when used as echocardiographic contrast agents for this purpose are often unsatisfactory. We describe the use of agitated modified gelatin, a cheap and readily available agent that provides excellent echocardiographic images and identifies the myocardium supplied by the targeted septal artery.
