Abstract

Various applications of contrast-assisted ultrasound require controlled destruction of contrast agent microbubbles. Mechanisms of fragmentation, acoustically driven diffusion, and static diffusion related to microbubble destruction are studied. Fragmentation is found responsible for rapid destruction of contrast agents on a time scale of microseconds.
