• Constructive shear wave interference imaging to characterize skin sclerosis

    Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) and Shear Wave Elasticity Imaging (SWEI) have been shown to have value in quantifying the stiffness of skin in sclerotic disease processes, such as morphea and Graph-Versus-Host-Disease (GVHD). Quantifying the stiffness of sclerotic skin can have clinical v...

  • Microbubbles in therapeutic ultrasound

    Microbubbles have been developed as ultrasound contrast agents as an emulsion of stabilized gas bubbles that can be injected systemically and circulate throughout the body. Contrast between vascular structures and other tissues is due to the high echogenicity of the bubbles and the significantly ...

  • Magnetic nanodroplets for targeted drug delivery

    A limitation of microbubbles for both diagnostic and therapeutic applications is their relatively rapid clearance times, typically < 10 minutes. One solution to this is to use nanoscale droplets of volatile liquids that can be converted into microbubbles upon exposure to ultrasound. Their small s...
