Title: Technological review: contrast-enhanced ultrasonography
Author: Christian Greis
Bracco Altana Pharma, Konstanz, Germany

This paper reviews fundamental physicochemical properties of contrast agents used in ultrasonography (US) and describes their interaction with the ultrasound wave during imaging. It also covers basic principles of contrast-specific imaging techniques and discusses physiological parameters that can be investigated with contrast-enhanced US.
