Nanoparticle-targeted photoacoustic cavitation for tissue imaging

Abstract:

Photoacoustic tomography is a non-invasive imaging technique based on the detection of broadband acoustic emissions generated by the absorption of light in tissue. This technique utilises the high contrast of optical imaging with high resolution from ultrasound imaging. However, the ability to detect these emissions above the noise level ultimately limits the depth to which imaging can be performed. Introduction of light-absorbing gold nanoparticles can improve the signal-to-noise ratio in ti...
