3D optoacoustic tomography: From molecular targets in mouse models to functional imaging of breast cancer

Abstract

A review of our recent works advancing three-dimensional optoacoustic tomography systems and their applications in preclinical imaging using small animal models and clinical application in diagnostic imaging of breast cancer is presented. We also discuss benefits of the latest addition of the laser ultrasound tomography to the optoacoustic imaging system. Examples of preclinical and clinical images obtained with laser optoacoustic ultrasonic imaging system (LOUIS-3D are provided and challenges of achieving further progress are outlined.
