Ultrasound-responsive nanoparticle can selectively target cancer cell by applying ultrasound waves at the desired part, minimizing unwanted effect and improving the efficacy of anticancer agent. In this review we summarize the recent application of ultrasound responsive nanoparticles for imaging and therapy.
