A low-cost adjustable illumination scheme for hand-held photoacoustic imaging probe is presented, manufactured and tested in this paper. Compared with traditional photoacoustic probe design, it has the following advantages: (1) Different excitation modes can be selected as needed. By tuning control parameters, it can achieve bright-field, dark-field, and hybrid field light illumination schemes. (2) The spot-adjustable unit (SAU) specifically designed for beam expansion, together with a water…

Image Infusion of Photoacoustic Imaging Based on Novel Adjustable Hand-held Probe

An automated hand-held PA probe with adjustable illumination angle, spot size and distance is designed and an adaptive control system for controlling the probe to achieve optimum illumination is developed.

Adjustable Handheld Probe Design for Photoacoustic Imaging:Experimental Validation

The proposed PA imaging system includes a control unit that can adaptively find the light illumination pattern for the PA signal generation with optimized signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and can be fully automatic and adaptive by electronic control.

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.

Advanced photoacoustic and thermoacoustic sensing and imaging beyond pulsed absorption contrast

In this paper, we review the recent progress in the photoacoustic (PA) and thermoacoustic (TA) imaging domain. Going beyond the conventional investigation of optical/microwave absorption contrast,

A procedure for multiple-pulse maximum permissible exposure determination under the Z136.1-2000 American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers

The current national consensus standard for laser safety in the United States is the American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers (ANSI Z136.1). Over the past few years, a comprehensive rewrite

Photoacoustic microscopy: principles and biomedical applications

The major biomedical applications of PAM are introduced, including anatomical imaging across scales from cellular level to organismal level, label-free functional imaging using endogenous biomolecules, and molecular imaging using exogenous contrast agents.

Hybrid multi-wavelength nonlinear photoacoustic sensing and imaging.

The proposed hPAI imaging has the potential to provide another pathway for high spectroscopic optical absorption contrast in PA imaging and shows a much lower system cost due to the usage of single-wavelength pulsed lasers and multiple inexpensive CW lasers.

Wavelet de-noising method with adaptive threshold selection for photoacoustic tomography

This paper proposes a new adaptive wavelet threshold de-noising (aWTD) algorithm, and applies it in photoacoustic tomography to increase the PA signal’s SNR without sacrificing the signal fidelity and imaging speed.
