    Medical Imaging Technology Exploits Light, Sound

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    Photoacoustic imaging, or the use of light to create sound, can result in better diagnoses of solid tumors in breast, thyroid, and other cancers, as well as reveal the development of Crohn’s disease, vascular disease, and other conditions. And now, after decades of research and development, the first photoacoustic devices for clinical diagnostics are awaiting FDA clearance.

    Photoacoustic (or optoacoustic) tomography can image blood flow, volume, and oxygen saturation, providing important functional information to complement structural data, including the location and shape of specific tissues such as bones or organs. Advancements in sources, detectors, software, and systems are resulting in a reduction of costs and the improved…
