Blood-brain barrier: real-time feedback-controlled focused ultrasound disruption by using an acoustic emissions-based controller.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine if focused ultrasound disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) can be safely controlled by using real-time modulation of treatment pressures on the basis of acoustic emissions from the exposed microbubbles. MATERIALS AND METHODS All experiments were performed with the approval of the institutional animal care committee… (More)
