Potential Annual Savings Using LUMASON® Ultrasound Enhancing Agent

You can save your institution time and money by reducing the number of sub-optimal studies performed.

Enter the number of echo studies you perform annually to see the savings for your institution. Although all other values entered are based on published data, they can be amended to reflect your institution specific data.13

Number of Echo Studies*

Annual number of echo studies performed in the lab

Operations Cost Non-Contrast

The operations cost from an echo lab to perform single study.

Sonographers Performing Studies

Study cost at 1 hour per study

Number of Sub-Optimal Studies

ASE Guidelines cite 20% of all echo studies are sub-optimal requiring an additional study.

Potential Annual Savings Using LUMASON® Ultrasound Enhancing Agent

See how the sub-optimal studies are reduced and the subsequent annual savings for your institution.

Sub-Optimal Studies Reduced

Value of performing the initial echo study using contrast as opposed to risking a sub-optimal study requiring further diagnostic testing or an additional echo study.
