Heat enhances gas delivery and acoustic attenuation in CO(2) filled microbubbles.

Abstract

Thermo-responsive chitosan microbubbles were developed as new therapeutic device for vehiculating gases to tissues concomitantly to hyperthermic treatments. Aiming at applications to non-invasive temperature monitoring, microbubbles were characterized for acoustic attenuation properties in the 1-15 MHz range both by direct methods and by B-mode Ultrasound… (More)
