Cancer Imaging Application Note

Cancer Detection and Monitoring with the TriTomTM Photoacoustic imaging has become a popular tool in preclinical cancer research as a noninvasive technique for monitoring tumor growth and therapeutic response. Specifically, photoacoustic imaging can provide high-sensitivity images of both superficial and deep vasculature and quantitative assessment of blood oxygen saturation without exogenous contrast. The TriTom small […]

Spatiotemporal Image Reconstruction to Enable High-Frame-Rate Dynamic Photoacoustic Tomography with Rotating-Gantry Volumetric Imagers

Author(s): Refik Mert Cam, Chao Wang, Weylan Thompson, Sergey A. Ermilov, Mark A. Anastasio, Umberto Villa ABSTRACT Significance Dynamic photoacoustic computed tomography (PACT) is a valuable imaging technique for monitoring physiological processes. However, current dynamic PACT imaging techniques are often limited to two-dimensional spatial imaging. Although volumetric PACT imagers are commercially available, these systems typically employ a rotating measurement gantry […]

SPHERICAL-VIEW PHOTOACOUSTIC TOMOGRAPHY FOR MONITORING IN VIVO PLACENTAL FUNCTION

29 September 2020 Author(s): Kristie Huda , Chengxi Wu , Jaclyn G. Sider, Carolyn L. Bayer ABSTRACT Photoacoustic tomography has great potential to image dynamic functional changes in vivo. Many tomographic systems are built with a circular view geometry, necessitating a linear translation along one axis of the subject to obtain a three-dimensional volume. In this work, we […]

NON-INVASIVE 3D PHOTOACOUSTIC TOMOGRAPHY OF ANGIOGRAPHIC ANATOMY AND HEMODYNAMICS OF FATTY LIVERS IN RATS

17 November 2022 Author(s): Xin Tong, Li Lin, Peng Hu, Rui Cao, Yang Zhang, Joshua Olick-Gibson,and Lihong V. Wang ABSTRACT Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common liver disorder worldwide, which strongly correlates to obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndromes. Complementary to mainstream liver diagnostic modalities, photoacoustic tomography (PAT) can provide high-speed images with functional […]

WHOLE-BODY HUMAN UTLRASOUND TOMOGRAPHY

ABSTRACT We developed a system for whole-body human ultrasound tomography in reflection andtransmission modes. A custom 512-element ultrasound receiver array with a rotating single-element ultrasound transmitter are used to generate 2D isotropically resolved images across the entire human cross-section. We demonstrate this technique in regions such as the abdomen and legs in healthy volunteers. Compared […]

A COMBINED ULTRASOUND AND PHOTOACOUSTIC IMAGING PLATFORM FOR CLINICAL RESEARCH APPLICATIONS

3 March 2022 Author(s): Weylan Thompson, Hans-Peter Brecht, Sergey A. Ermilov, Vassili Ivanov ABSTRACT We present the continued development of a clinical ultrasound (US) imaging device with a photoacoustic (PA) mode. The combined USPA imaging platform is designed around a compact US component capable of B-mode, M-mode, color Doppler, and pulsed wave Doppler US imaging modes with a […]

HYBRID PHOTOACOUSTIC ULTRASOUND IMAGING SYSTEM FOR COLD-INDUCED VASOCONSTRICTION AND VASODILATION MONITORING

02 August 2023 Author(s): Ruochong Zhang, Xiuting Li, Ghayathri Balasundaram, Baocheng Li, Yi Qi, Anindita Santosa, Tze Chin Tan, Malini Olivo, Renzhe Bi ABSTRACT Lewis hunting reaction refers to the alternating cold-induced vasoconstriction and dilation in extremities, whose underlying mechanism is complex. While numerous studies reported this intriguing phenomenon by measuring cutaneous temperature fluctuation under cold exposure, few of them tracked peripheral vascular […]

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 […]
