GPU-Accelerated 3D Volumetric X-Ray-Induced Acoustic Computed Tomography

Author(s): Donghyun Lee, Eun-Yeong Park, Seongwook Choi, Hyeongsub Kim, Jung-joon Min, Changho Lee, and Chulhong Kim ABSTRACT X-ray acoustic imaging is a hybrid biomedical imaging technique that can acoustically monitor X-ray absorption distribution in biological tissues through the X-ray induced acoustic effect. In this study, we developed a 3D volumetric X-ray-induced acoustic computed tomography (XACT) […]

X-Ray Acoustics

What is X-Ray Acoustics? X-Ray Acoustics is the conversion of pulsed X-rays into sound waves. The interaction of X-rays and tissue is weaker than that of optical light which allows for deep penetration. However, the same weak interaction is greatly reducing contrast. The long pulse duration of X-ray sources limits the spatial resolution of X-ray […]

MONODISPERSE SUB-100 NM AU NANOSHELLS FOR LOW-FLUENCE DEEP-TISSUE PHOTOACOUSTIC IMAGING

August 4, 2023 Author(s): Luis D. B. Manuel, Vinion Devpaul Vincely, Carolyn Bayer, and Kevin M. McPeak ABSTRACT Nanoparticles with high absorption cross sections will advance therapeutic and bioimaging nanomedicine technologies. While Au nanoshells have shown great promise in nanomedicine, state-of-the-art synthesis methods result in scattering-dominant particles, mitigating their efficacy in absorption-based techniques that leverage […]

FUNCTIONAL PHOTOACOUSTIC IMAGING FOR PLACENTAL MONITORING: A MINI REVIEW

available on¬†2024-09-29 Author(s): Vinoin Devpaul Vincely,¬†Carolyn L Bayer ABSTRACT The placenta, a highly vascularized interface between the mother and fetus, undergoes dramatic anatomical and functional changes during pregnancy. These changes occur both during healthy development and adverse pathologies of pregnancy, such as preeclampsia. Abnormal placental development can lead to life-long health impacts on both the […]

A 3D IMAGING SYSTEM INTEGRATING PHOTOACOUSTIC AND FLUORESCENCE ORTHOGONAL PROJECTIONS FOR ANATOMICAL, FUNCTIONAL, AND MOLECULAR ASSESSMENT OF RODENT MODELS

16 March 2018 Authors: Hans P. Brecht, Vassili Ivanov, Diego S. Dumani, Stanislav Y. Emelianov, Mark A. Anastasio, Sergey A. Ermilov ABSTRACT We have developed a preclinical 3D imaging instrument integrating photoacoustic tomography and fluorescence (PAFT) addressing known deficiencies in sensitivity and spatial resolution of the individual imaging components. PAFT is designed for simultaneous acquisition of photoacoustic and fluorescence orthogonal […]

DUAL-MODALITY X-RAY-INDUCED RADIATION ACOUSTIC AND ULTRASOUND IMAGING FOR REAL-TIME MONITORING OF RADIOTHERAPY

This is the third webinar of the Legion AMP webinar series, hosted by PhotoSound Technologies. This webinar covers dual-modality, ultrasound, and thermoacoustic imaging in real-time, while using an ionizing radiation source, for the purpose of monitoring radiation therapy, as presented by Dr. Wei Zhang from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, […]
