    Department of Neurosurgery, St, Olavs University Hospital, Trondheim, N 7006, Norway
    BMC Med Imaging 14:11. 2014
    ..Our research group has developed an acoustic coupling fluid that attenuates ultrasound energy like the normal brain. We aimed to test in animals if the newly developed acoustic coupling fluid may have harmful effects...
