The profound effect of bubbles on the propagation of sound and ultrasound through liquids and tissue has meant that understanding of this process is key to a wealth of applications. These range from cases where that interaction is exploited (such as in the use of biomedical contrast agents) to circumstances where the potency of the effect massively hinders our capabilities (for example, the operation of sonar in coastal waters). The two diagnostic examples given above are revealing. The fact… CONTINUE READING
