Viscover´s innovative ultrasound agent PolySon H consists of highly robust microbubbles, optimized for imaging of the liver at high acoustic pressures. It is perfectly suited for stimulated acoustic emission (SAE) imaging based on inducible bubble rupture using a high-emergy ultrasound beam.

The innovative ultrasound agent, PolySon H:

  • Delivers optimal contrast at all typically used frequencies, even above 30 MHz
  • Is optimized for imaging of the liver
  • Is perfectly suited for stimulated acoustic emission (SAE) using a high-energy ultrasound beam
  • PolySon H is Viscover´s leading US agent for liver imaging

Apply PolySon H to:

  • Effectively visualize liver morphology
  • Detect single particles via sensitive partivle acoustic quantification (SPAQ) methods
  • Perform stimulated acoustic emission (SAE) using a high-energy ultrasound beam (high mechanical index)

PolySon H liver imaging

Liver imaging based on stimulated acoustic emission using PolySon H. The pseudo-doppler effect resulting from the rupture of single bubbles can be seen in red and blue false-color.
