The research on the medical use of microbubbles has coontinuously provided fascinating results for half a century. Investigating new agents or new uses of existing agents requires both innovative physics and ideas and extensive testing in-vitro and in vivo. The translation from the lab to the clinic is long and calls upon many specialties. In this dissertation, we have presented and studied various experimental agents for biomedical imaging and therapy, some in the early development phase and some others in a more advanced animal testing phase.
