Quantitative assessment of damage during MCET: a parametric study in a rodent model
BackgroundMyocardial cavitation-enabled therapy (MCET) has been proposed as a means to achieve minimally invasive myocardial reduction using ultrasound to produce scattered microlesions by cavitatingExpand

Use of Theranostic Strategies in Myocardial Cavitation-Enabled Therapy.
The accumulation of microlesions induced by ultrasound interaction with contrast microbubbles in the myocardium potentially represents a new method of tissue reduction therapy. Anesthetized rats wereExpand

Congenital curvilinear palpable hyperpigmentation.
We report two cases of congenital curvilinear palpable hyperpigmentation on the posterior aspect of bilateral legs in male infants. These lesions appeared shortly after birth and mimicked child abuseExpand

Maturation of Lesions Induced by Myocardial Cavitation-Enabled Therapy.
Myocardial contrast echocardiography at enhanced therapeutic parameters may be a novel means of tissue reduction therapy, as for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dahl/SS rats were anesthetized andExpand

Multiple ultrasound cavitation-enabled treatments for myocardial reduction
BackgroundUltrasound myocardial cavitation enabled treatment (MCET) is an image-guided method for tissue reduction. In this study, a strategy of fractionated (multiple) treatments was tested forExpand
