Bursting Bubbles and Bilayers

  title={Bursting Bubbles and Bilayers},
  author={Steven P. Wrenn and Stephen M. Dicker and Eleanor F. Small and Nily Dan and Michał Mleczko and Georg Schmitz and Peter A. Lewin},
This paper discusses various interactions between ultrasound, phospholipid monolayer-coated gas bubbles, phospholipid bilayer vesicles, and cells. The paper begins with a review of microbubble physics models, developed to describe microbubble dynamic behavior in the presence of ultrasound, and follows this with a discussion of how such models can be used to predict inertial cavitation profiles. Predicted sensitivities of inertial cavitation to changes in the values of membrane properties… CONTINUE READING
