Optical science and engineering; 143


The hybrid imaging and spectroscopy approach that combines light and sound is becoming quite popular in biomedical applications, partly because it poses none of the health risks associated with x-rays and other ionizing radiation. Contributors from medical and technical fields summarize the current status of the technology and its application for the benefit of fellow scientists and engineers. After reviewing the fundamentals, they focus on image reconstruction from the perspectives of algorithms, resolution, and view; mathematics; and advanced algorithms. Other general themes include ultrasonic detectors for photoacoustic tomography, array-based photoacoustic tomography with laser excitation, functional and molecular photoacoustic tomography, and multimodal imaging.
