Core Tip In this work we investigated the acoustic response of novel dual-mode nanoparticle contrast agents, detectable through both ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), made of silica nanospheres (SiNSs) of different diameters coated with superparamagnetic nanoparticles [iron-oxide (IO) or FePt-IO nanocrystals]. Magnetically-coated SiNSs were insonified with US pulses in the lower diagnostic range (2.5-4.5 MHz), which are commonly employed for the imaging of deep organs, and the results were compared with those of pure SiNSs. The US characterization of these nanocomposites shows that FePt-IO, rather than IO, was the best magnetic coating for realizing nanosized contrast agents suitable for dual mode imaging of deep targets, combining US and MRI techniques.
