Abstract

As a well-established method for clinical imaging, ultrasound can also be used as source of focused waves to selectively affect tissues by activating drug carriers and/or improving drug uptake in tumors providing a novel strategy for targeted treatment [1]. In this chapter we describe the design of nanoparticles that can respond to effects induced by focused ultrasound that can be used in cancer therapy.
