For a decade, silicon microparticles have attracted the attention of the scientific community. Currently, a large number of scientific advances are based on the use of microparticles as acting surfaces, vehicles, information systems, new materials or in biomedicine. This report focuses on increasing the efficiency of the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technique (HIFU) by using silicon microparticles,which are characterized by their good biocompatibility, the easy obtention in different sizes and shapes, as well as the easy functionalization.
