The purpose of this study was to comprehend the mechanism of stable cavitation (SC)-induced signal intensity (SI) changes by fast spin-echo images in a phantom with flowing MBs. We postulated that the different patterns of SI changes might be related to transmitting FUS pulses at different timing of k-line acquisitions. The SC-induced microstreaming and shear force could generate hypo- and hyper-SI changes, respectively. In conclusion, the illustration of the mechanism could be helpful for designing experiments in monitoring SC-induced SI changes.
