An experimental method for characterizing microbubbles' oscillations is presented. With a Dual Frequency ultrasound excitation method, both relative and absolute microbubble size variations can be measured. Using the same experimental setup, a simple signal processing step applied to both the amplitude and the frequency modulations yields a two-fold picture of microbubbles' dynamics. In addition, assuming the occurrence of small radial oscillations, the equilibrium radius of the microbubbles can be accurately estimated.
