Hand-held 3D Photoacoustic Imager with GPS

  title={Hand-held 3D Photoacoustic Imager with GPS},
  author={Daohuai Jiang and Hongbo Chen and Yuting Shen and Yifan Zhang and Feng Gao and Rui Zheng and Fei Gao},
As an emerging medical diagnostic technology, photoacoustic imaging has been implemented for both preclinical and clinical applications. For clinical convenience, a handheld free-scan photoacoustic tomography (PAT) system providing 3D imaging capability is essentially needed, which has potential for surgical navigation and disease diagnosis. In this paper, we proposed a free-scan 3D PAT (fsPAT) system based on a hand-held linear-array ultrasound probe. A global positioning system (GPS) is…

Photoacoustics: a historical review

We review the history of photoacoustics from the discovery in 1880 that modulated light produces acoustic waves to the current time, when the pulsed variant of the discovery is fast developing into a

A fast 512-element ring array photoacoustic imaging system for small animals

A 512-element photoacoustic tomography system for small animal imaging using a ring ultrasound array has been developed. The system features a 5 MHz piezocomposite transducer array formed into a

Handheld Photoacoustic Imager for Theranostics in 3D

The development of a 3D handheld photoacoustic imager for dynamic (temporally and spatially) volumetric visualization paves the way for compact and handheld-operating implementations and its further clinical exploration is promising.

Optical resolution photoacoustic microscopy based on multimode fibers.

The use of multimode fiber for achieving tight optical focus would make the optical alignment easier and high repetition rate light delivery possible for high-speed OR-PAM imaging.

Molecular imaging by means of multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT).

Emerging optoacoustic technologies that allow the visualization of optical reporter agents with never-seen-before visualization performance, enabling volumetric quantitative molecular imaging in entire organs, small animals, or human tissues are reviewed.
