Lipid coated microbubbles and nanodroplets as tools for biomedical nanotechnology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Lipid coated microbubbles and nanodroplets represent a new platform for biomedical nanotechnology. Ultrasound imaging can detect a single microbubble making this one of the most sensitive imaging techniques in medicine. Ultrasound energy can be used to activate bubbles and nanodroplets for therapy to dissolve blood clots (sonothrombolysis) and to deliver drugs and genes. Additionally, perfluorocarbon bubbles can be used for oxygen delivery. In the following review we will discuss the technology and some of the potential applications.
