Ultrasound Contrast Agent by Pavlin et al

to Charles Pavlin M.D.

Thank you for the very interesting experimental study. My questions are: Is it possible to image the ulrasound contrast material using conventional 10 MHz B-scan in cadaver eyes?
What is your opinion about the use of US contrast agent in a living eye? I think in a normal eye the contrast material does not enter into the eyeball, but we might image the circulation of small orbital and intraocular vessels better. In pathological cases we might study the pathologic vessels like the inside vasculature of a tumor. Do you have experience in this field? What about other applications?
