Ultrasonic contrast agent shell rupture detected by inertial cavitation and rebound signals.

Abstract:

Determining the rupture pressure threshold of ultrasound contrast agent microbubbles has significant applications for contrast imaging, development of therapeutic agents, and evaluation of potential bioeffects. Using a passive cavitation detector, this work evaluates rupture based on acoustic emissions from single, encapsulated, gas-filled microbubbles. Sinusoidal ultrasound pulses were transmitted into weak solutions of Optison at different center frequencies (0.9, 2.8, and 4.6 MHz), pulse d...
