Assessment of coronary artery disease using echocardiography is normally performed by the detection of regional wall motion abnormalities at rest or stress-induced myocardial hypoperfusion and ischaemia. Direct visualization of native coronary arteries by echocardiography is uncommon, but possible. In contrast, imaging of coronary artery flow by transthoracic color-coded Doppler echocardiography is increasingly popular, especially in combination with the administration of adenosine for the non-invasive assessment of coronary flow velocity reserve.
