Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) is an emerging technology for biomedical imaging that combines the superiorities of high optical contrast and acoustic penetration. In the PAT system, more photoacoustic (PA) signals are preferred to be detected from full field of view to reconstruct PA images with higher fidelity. However, the requirement for more PA signals detection leads to more time consumption for single-channel scanning based PAT system, or higher cost of data acquisition (DAQ) module for…

Low-Cost Photoacoustic Tomography System Based on Multi-Channel Delay-Line Module

A multiway PA signal delay-line module for PAT was proposed, which merges four channels of PA signals in one channel that significantly reduces DAQ’s channel number needed for PAT system.

Parallel acoustic delay lines for photoacoustic tomography

The results show that anoptically absorbing target in an optically scattering medium can be photoacoustically imaged using the newly developed PADL-based PAT system, and this approach could be adopted to significantly reduce the complexity and cost of ultrasonic array receiver systems.

Enhancement of photoacoustic tomography by ultrasonic computed tomography based on optical excitation of elements of a full-ring transducer array.

This Letter incorporated ultrasonic computed tomography (USCT), which measures the SOS distribution within the object, into the full-ring array PACT system, and verified that constant SOS is a reasonable approximation when the SOS variation is small.

Photoacoustic imaging in biomedicine

Photoacoustic imaging (also called optoacoustic or thermoacoustic imaging) has the potential to image animal or human organs, such as the breast and the brain, with simultaneous high contrast and

Improved back-projection method for circular-scanning-based photoacoustic tomography with improved tangential resolution.

An improved back-projection method that factors in the geometry of the transducers to improve the tangential resolution for the reconstruction of 2D circular-scanning-based photoacoustic tomography can effectively restore the tangentials distortion of the PACT image for both simulated and experimental data.
