Phonophoresis uses ultrasound to enhance the delivery of topical drugs such as dexamethasone, a glucocorticoid used for anti-inflammatory purposes. In this and other applications of phonophoresis, the drug of choice is combined with a gel rubbed into the affected area, and ultrasound waves dilate nearby blood vessels, enhancing uptake into the bloodstream.
