Disruption of the blood-spinal cord barrier (BSCB) can be successfully achieved with the intravenous administration of microbubbles and the application of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU). This protocol details the opening of the BSCB using LIFU in a rodent model, including equipment setup, microbubble injection, target localization, and BSCB disruption visualization.
