Overview

Echocardiography may be helpful in the diagnosis of fat embolism syndrome. Findings of fat embolism syndrome include demonstartion of echogenic material passing through the right atrium followed by increased pulmonary pressures and right heart pressures and subsequent paradoxical embolization of this material through a patent foramen ovale (PFO).
