Assessment and Biodistribution of a Dual Ultrasound Contrast and Photoacoustic Imaging Agent
This study by Yosra Toumia et al. advances the knowledge of the behavior of a hybrid system consisting of pristine graphene anchored polyvinyl alcohol microbubbles (G/PVA MB), and is a proof concept for their efficiency as contrast agents in photoacoustic as well as ultrasound imaging.
The ultrasound of the bladder is a representative transabdominal view and clearly shows an infiltrating mass, albeit a small one, into the lumen of the bladder. This imaging plane was acquired using an MS550 transducer.
