Contrast enhanced ultrasound ceus is the application of ultrasound contrast medium to traditional medical sonography ultrasound contrast agents rely on the different ways in which sound waves are reflected from interfaces between substances this may be the surface of a small air bubble or a more complex structure. Discover nonlinear ultrasound contrast agent imaging quantify relative perfusion and study biomarker expression with ease microbubble ultrasound contrast agents have been used in imaging as a means of improving the visualization of blood flow with respect to the surrounding tissue. Ultrasound contrast agents study guide by leo tran1 includes 23 questions covering vocabulary terms and more quizlet flashcards activities and games help you improve your grades. The compression of the gas is greater than expansion which creates a non linear response echo this greatly affects ultrasound backscatter and increases vascular contrast in a similar manner to intravenous contrast agents used in ct and mri 2 examples of ultrasound contrast agents available commercially include sonovue r bracco contrast . The engineering of ultrasound contrast agents co optimized with systems for imaging their local distribution and enhancing their use in local drug delivery is a rich multidisciplinary undertaking ultrasound contrast agents are small gas bubbles encapsulated by a stabilizing shell with a typical diameter on the order of microns table 1
