Modelling the Effect of Focusing Detectors in Photoacoustic Sectional Imaging

Abstract

To effectively use photoacoustic tomography to obtain cross-sectional images, a combination of a focused laser illumination and focusing acoustic detectors is used. In this work, we discuss how to incorporate cylindrically shaped focusing detectors in the mathematical modelling of photoacoustics and derive approximative reconstruction formulas. Moreover, we… (More)
