A non-exothermic cell-embedding tissue-mimicking material for studies of ultrasound-induced hyperthermia and drug release.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: The present study aims to create and characterise a cell-embedding tissue-mimicking material (TMM) that has thermal and acoustic properties similar to liver tissue, in order to enable study and optimisation of protocols for ultrasound-induced hyperthermia and drug delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An agarose-based, cell-embedding TMM was iteratively developed and characterised. The acoustic properties (attenuation coefficient, speed of sound and cavitation threshold) and thermal resp...
