The nonlinear properties of microbubble contrast agents have been used to create contrast-specific imaging modalities such as harmonic imaging and subharmonic imaging. Thus, a better understanding of the nonlinear performance of contrast microbubbles may enhance the diagnostic capabilities of medical ultrasound (US) imaging. The first and second harmonic, the 1/2 order subharmonic and the 3/2 order ultraharmonic components in spectra of scattered signals from Optison microbubbles insonified at… CONTINUE READING
