Passive acoustic mapping of magnetic microbubbles in an in vitro flow model.
Magnetic microbubbles can be successfully retained near a vascular target and simultaneously imaged using conventional B-mode ultrasound. When further modified to carry a drug, they could enable significant enhancements in targeted drug delivery for applications such as sonothrombolysis, where stable cavitation has been shown to play a key role. However, the effect of the increased proximity of the microbubbles under the effect of the magnetic field on their acoustic response remains unknown....Expand abstract
