Figure 7

(a) US image of a mouse cross-section before injection of PAnDs displaying the location of the spleen and pancreas. (b) US image of the same cross-section after the direct injection and laser activation of PAnDs. The boxes in both images identify the region of interest where PAnDs were injected. The activated PAnDs resulted in an ~29-dB increase over the native contrast. Both panels are 13.5 mm wide by 18.1 mm tall, and are in 20-dB scale.
