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, USA. During the introduction, Sam Toler, System Test Engineer I, provides a brief explanation over how the Legion AMP can optimize the SNR and low frequency bandwidth of your photoacoustic/thermoacoustic system.
- Topics Covered:
- Legion Amp design
- Legion Amp motivation
- Legion Amp noise measurements
- Legion Amp variations
- Objective of studies
- Legion Amp demo
- Results of studies
