imaging, the microbubbles are acoustically reflective over a range of frequencies from below 1 MHz to above 20 MHz. Definity is a blood pool agent. It is generally not appreciably taken up by macro-phages, but recirculates in the blood, traveling throughout the vascular system in a similar way to red blood cells, until an appreciable quantity of gas has cleared across the membrane. Fluoro-carbon gases are then cleared from the blood by the lungs. While Definity is not considered to be the proto… CONTINUE READING
