|Abstract: ||Sonication is a crucial step in the manufacture of microencapsulated bubbles used as contrast agents (CA) for diagnostic ultrasound imaging. Hollow, poly (D,L-lactic- acid) microcapsules are prepared by a double emulsion (W(O)/W) method developed in our laboratory, and the power setting used to create the double emulsion has a direct effect on the morphology and size of the CA that is produced. This experiment is designed to find the optimal power setting (in watts) of the sonicator for the manufacture of uniform sized, highly echogenic microencapsulated bubbles.|
