Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Observed the Change of Pulmonary Artery Systolic Pressure (PASP) Measured by Millimeters of Mercury (mm hg) Within Certain Time Periods. This is Per Sequence and Not a Cross-over Study. [ Time Frame: Measurements recorded at Baseline, 2 minutes, 6 minutes and 10 minutes post contrast administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Measurement of the Pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) results, which were taken from the subject in millimeters of mercury; a unit of pressure (mm hg), at Baseline and at 2 minutes, 6 minutes and 10 minutes. This is per sequence and not a cross-over study.

  • Observed the Change of Pulmonary Vascular Resistance (PVR) Measured by Wood Units Within Certain Time Periods. This is Per Sequence and Not a Cross-over Study. [ Time Frame: Measurements recorded at Baseline, 2 minutes, 6 minutes and 10 minutes post contrast administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Measurement of the pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) results, which was taken from the subject in Wood Units, taken at Baseline and at 2 minutes, 6 minutes and 10 minutes. This is per sequence and not a cross-over study.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Recorded Any Adverse Events From the Optison and Control Solution (5% Dextrose) Used in Subjects With Normal and Elevated Pulmonary Artery Systolic Pressure (PASP. This is Per Sequence and Not a Cross-over Study. [ Time Frame: During the injection and catheterization procedure, and for up to 24 hours post-injection ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Observe subjects with normal pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) and elevated pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) as measured by any adverse events.

    The number of participants were stratified based on a screening pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP). Subjects stratified by; 11 subjects that were Normal PASP and 19 subjects that were Elevated PASP.

    This is per sequence and not a cross-over study.
