The lecture was easy to follow, and very informative. He broke it down with the slides, in easy to follow format. His diction was easy to understand as well.

Dr. Lindner's presentation was very clear and understandable. I found it very helpful in breaking down the principles underlying microbubble acoustics and their applications.
