Title (EN) ULTRASONIC IMAGE ENHANCEMENT
(FR) AMELIORATION D"IMAGES ULTRASONIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Ultrasonic images of flowing streams can provide important information regarding the streams. Herein, a plurality of microbubbles are provided in such streams to enhance such images, aid in tumor detection and treatment, provide maping of vascularity of tissue masses and measure instantaneous blood flow rate. The preferred microbubbles have a coalescence resistant surface membrane encapsulating a gas of a selected composition, the membrane including non-toxic and non-antigenic organic molecules. Preferably, the microbubbles have diameters in the 0.5 micron to 300 microns range.
(FR)Des images ultrasoniques de courants de circulation peuvent fournir d"importantes informations concernant les courants. Une pluralite de microbulles sont envoyes dans ces courants pour ameliorer de telles images, aider a detecter et traiter les tumeurs, determiner le reseau vasculaire des masses de tissu et mesurer le debit sanguin instantane. Les microbulles preferees ont une membrane a surface resistant a la coalescence renfermant un gaz d"une composition choisie, la membrane comprenant des molecules organiques non toxiques et non antigenes. De preference, les microbulles ont des diametres compris entre 0,5 microns et 300 microns.
