Converting Molecular Vibration to Mechanical Wave for Bond-Selective Imaging of Deep Tissue (cited: 1)
- Received Date: 2015-04-04
Abstract: As an emerging label-free imaging modality with chemical selectivity and millimeter-depth resolvability, vibrational photoacoustic imaging provides a new avenue to map chemical content in biological tissue. It heralds the potential for detection of white matter loss and regeneration, assessment of breast tumor margin, and clinical diagnosis of vulnerable plaques in atherosclerosis. In this work, we provide an overview of the development of bond-selective photoacoustic imaging and various biomedical applications enabled by this new technology.
