Investigating the effect of fabrication method on the stability and acoustic response of microbubble agents

Abstract:

Microbubbles stabilized by a surfactant or polymer coating are already in clinical use as ultrasound imaging contrast agents. They have also been widely investigated as vehicles for drug delivery and gene therapy that can be tracked and triggered using ultrasound. Extensive studies have been made of the effects of the coating material and gas core on microbubble characteristics but the influence of the fabrication method has received less attention. The aim of this study was to compare the be...
