Biomedical flows

Bubbles have various applications in the biomedical field. Coated microbubbles are used in ultrasound imaging to enhace the contrast in cardiac or liver perfusion images. Bubbles can be targeted to specific cells for molecular imaging to non-invasively detect the presence and location of diseases such as cancer or atherosclerosis. Furthermore, the bubbles can be exploited to generate acoustic streaming and jetting near cell boundaries which leads to permeation, destruction or removal of target cells.
