What is #photoacoustic tomography? Photoacoustic #Imaging is based on the photoacoustic effect where pulsed laser light is used to illuminate the tissue of interest. The pulsed laser light is absorbed which results in thermoelastic expansion. Pressure or sound waves are emitted and detected by wide band frequency transducers. These signals are then processed into high resolution volumes. PAT provides high spatial resolution at depth and okay sensitivity.

Our patented TriTom imaging platform is based on Photoacoustic Fluorescence Tomography (PAFT) technology that provides unparalleled capabilities for whole body imaging and #invivo characterization of small animal models. Combining these two modalities will provide complimentary information; the multimodality of co-registered PAT and fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT) will produce volumes that are high-resolution and have high molecular sensitivity. Photoacoustic Imaging, or Optoacoustic Imaging as known in the EU, and fluorescence imaging are popular imaging techniques due to their noninvasive features and they are mutually supportive characteristics such as imaging sensitivity, penetration depth, and speed.
