    Biomedical Photoacoustics Reverberates in Clinics

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    Shortly before Alexander Graham Bell’s death in 1922, the Scottish American scientist and inventor said the telephone was not what he regarded as his greatest achievement. Rather, that distinction went to a now little-known device called the photophone1.
