Abstract

A novel idea in using nanoparticle to assist ultrasound for imaging and therapy was pursued. With this approach, both imaging and therapy can be achieved simultaneously. The imaging for tumor was improved and the therapy can have better efficiency in killing cancer cells more than normal cells. Since ultrasound can penetrate deep into human body, it can be used to treat most human cancers.
