Dobutamine stress magnetic resonance imaging is considered the superior stress modality to detect wall motion abnormalities. In this report we demonstrate the strengths of a newly developed stress modality: dobutamine stress contrast-enhanced real-time three-dimensional echocardiography. This stress modality may become a competitor of stress magnetic resonance imaging allowing fast acquisition and an unlimited number of left ventricular cross sections. Unfortunately, at the moment adequate imaging with stress real-time three-dimensional echocardiography is only possible in a minority of cardiac patients.
