Imaging of perfusion using ultrasound

Abstract

Ultrasound can be used to image perfusion in two ways: the traditional one using Doppler and the more recent using microbubble contrast agents. Doppler is simple to use and inexpensive but is limited to larger vessels with faster flow rates. It cannot interrogate the microvasculature because bulk tissue movement is faster than capillary flow. It has been… (More)
