DescriptionPhotoacoustic maging (PAI), which converts the absorption of nanosecond laser light pulses in tissue into an ultrasonic signal via thermoelastic expansion, is currently one of the most rapidly emerging non-invasive bioimaging techniques. PAI can provide high-resolution 3D images of the structure and function of tissues at an approximate depth of 1.5 cm with a resolution of 40 um. Results from experimental studies are promising and show detailed images of small blood vessels and tumors with high resolution. However, only a few studies have been carried out on the morphology of human tissues. We are currently introducing the technique into clinical research.
