Optimizing Acoustic Activation of Phase Change Contrast Agents With the Activation Pressure Matching Method: A Review

Abstract

Submicrometer phase-change contrast agents (PCCAs) consist of a liquid perfluorocarbon (PFC) core that can be vaporized by ultrasound (acoustic droplet vaporization) to generate contrast with excellent spatial and temporal control. When these agents, commonly referred to as nanodroplets, are formulated with cores of low boiling-point PFCs such as… (More)
