Abstract: Ultrasound molecular imaging is based on the specific acoustic properties of acoustically active, gas-filled microbubbles (ultrasound contrast agents), which can be sensitively imaged with regular ultrasound methods. Modulating shell properties or binding specific probes to the microbubbles allows to target them to histological structures of interest. Due to the size and mode of delivery, microbubbles can mainly target intravascular epitopes. Fortunately, most disease processes result in the expression of such markers on local endothelium of the tissue microvasculature, allowing its targeted contrast ultrasound imaging.
