Quantitative guidelines for the prediction of ultrasound contrast agent destruction during injection.


Experiments and theory were undertaken on the destruction of ultrasound contrast agent microbubbles on needle injection, with the aim of predicting agent loss during in vivo studies. Agents were expelled through a variety of syringe and needle combinations, subjecting the microbubbles to a range of pressure drops. Imaging of the bubbles identified cases… (More)
