Theoretical and experimental investigation of the behaviour of ultrasound contrast agent particles in whole blood.
The majority of the existing models for the behaviour of ultrasound (US) contrast agents consider a single contrast agent particle (CAP) surrounded by an infinite, homogeneous and Newtonian fluid. In vivo, however, CAPs are suspended within the confines of blood vessels, in fluid containing both other CAPs and a high volume fraction of cells of comparable size. The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of blood cells upon CAP acoustic response to determine how existing models shou...Expand abstract
