New compound raises the bar for medical plastics

A polypyrolle compound developed by an international research team converts ultrasound waves into optical signals that can be used to produce an image. In the research study, polypyrolle, a conductive plastic, was compounded with gold nanorods, which generally are available in diameters from 10-50 nm. An optical signal transmitted into the plastics compound interacts with inbound ultrasound waves and then passes through. A specialized transducer reads the signal and converts it into an image.
