Microbubble Formulations for Photoacoustic Imaging and Sonothrombolysis Applications

Adam Dixon
Microbubbles provide a versatile platform for both ultrasound-mediated therapy and imaging. This dissertation outlines the design and characterization of two novel microbubble formulations used in separate photoacoustic imaging and sonothrombolysis applications. Microbubbles as Photoacoustic Imaging Contrast Agents Photoacoustic imaging is a noninvasive imaging technique that provides high contrast images of optical absorption deep within living tissue. Dual-modality ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging can simultaneously evaluate anatomical tissue properties with ultrasound and molecular properties with photoacoustics. The...
