Abstract

<p>Data are shown for individual subsonication targets delivered in the cingulate cortex in monkeys #4 and #6. The MRI enhancement was found in a 3×3 voxel ROI centered on the subsonication target. The MRI signal increased nonlinearly as a function of the strength of the harmonic emission. A good correlation (R<sup>2</sup>: 0.78) was found in a fit of the data to an exponential (solid line; dotted lines: 95% confidence intervals). Data shown are for the subsonication target that exhibited the greatest MRI signal enhancement for each of 28 multi-target sonications that were performed in the cingulate cortex in this study and included results from experiments where a second sonication was applied at either a higher power level or with an increased microbubble dose.</p
