This technique relies on ultrasonic detection of intravenously injected, gas-filled, encapsulated, microbubble contrast agents that possess microvascular rheologic characteristics similar to those of RBCs. To assess perfusion, microbubbles are infused intravenously and reach a steady state within the microcirculation. The microbubbles are then destroyed by a high-power ultrasonographic pulse, and the subsequent rate and extent of microbubble replenishment are used to determine microvascular blood velocity and volume, respectively (Fig.
