Targeting and characterisation of magnetic microbubbles for drug delivery using passive acoustic mapping

Abstract:

Passive acoustic mapping (PAM) is a versatile technique for monitoring of therapeutic ultrasound, in particular the generation of cavitation and subsequent bubble dynamics. The objective of this thesis was to apply PAM to investigate the activity of different types of cavitation agent and any correlation to therapeutic effects. The work focuses particularly on a new type of agent in the form of microbubbles that can be magnetically targeted, which have shown great potential for localised d...
