Abstract  Generation of magnetic micrbubbles and their basic magnetic and acoustic mechanism are reviewed. The ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance (MR) dual imaging, the controlled therapeutic delivery, as well as theranostic multifunctions are all introduced based on recent research results. Some on-going research is also discussed.
