Abstract Among all the diagnostic imaging techniques, ultrasound imaging is one of the most widely used imaging techniques around the world  due to its unique advantages, such as its features of real-time imaging, low cost, high safety and readily availability for portable devices. Although application of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) can significantly improve the accuracy and confidence of disease diagnosis by providing higher quality ultrasound images, ultrasound imaging also have some intrinsic limitations, such as its relatively limited sensitivity. Any medical imaging technique alone can not be so perfect and effective to get all the necessary diagnostic information. Therefore, in the recent years, the idea of using multimodal imaging method based on ultrasound imaging has gained popularity among researchers and they have come to realize that the complementary abilities of different imaging modalities could be harnessed to synergistic advantages over any modality alone by using them in tandem. Especially, multifunctional ultrasound contrast agents are able to operate as novel theranostic agents for both contrast-enhanced ultrasonic imaging and therapy, which holds a great potential for ultrasound-guided therapy in clinic cancer treatment. The present review will outline recent progress in the development of multifunctional ultrasound contrast agents including targeted ultrasound contrast agents, multimodal contrast agents and theranostic agents based on ultrasound imaging, along with their possible future applications.
