We came across an interesting case of calcific aortic stenosis in which severity was inaccurately assessed on two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiogram resulting in catheterization. Use of intravenous transpulmonary contrast agent enhanced the Doppler signal enabling better quantification of the transvalvular gradient. Use of contrast in such difficult to image patients is very useful in establishing a correct diagnosis.
