Contrast-enhanced photoacoustic imaging

Abstract

Photoacoustic (PA) imaging is rapidly evolving as a functional and molecular imaging tool. Contrast agents with high optical absorption, such as gold nanoparticles, have been used to target diseased cells and increase the specific contrast of PA imaging. However, background tissue absorption greatly limits the detection of PA signals and the specificity of… (More)
