Lumason and Pregnancy

For those who have Lumason on your formulary for ECHO - what is your policy for pregnant patients or females of child-bearing age?

We added Lumason to our formulary about a year ago and did not specifically address this population. While we are doing a thorough literature search to evaluate risks vs benefits, I thought I would see if others have addressed this. Thank you for your time.
