A 20-MHz passive acoustic detector was used to quantify the amount of transient acoustic cavitation occurring in a sample exposed to intense pulsed ultrasound. A dilute suspension of human erythrocytes with and without a microbubble echo-contrast agent was exposed in vitro to 500 W/cm2 (SPPA) ultrasound of center frequency 1 MHz and tone burst duration 20, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 microseconds at a pulse repetition frequency of 20 Hz. Inertial cavitation occurring within the sample, as measured… CONTINUE READING
