Simultaneous photoacoustic and optically mediated ultrasound microscopy: phantom study

An experimental setup for combined photoacoustic (PA) and optically mediated ultrasound (US) microscopy is presented. A spherically focused 35 MHz polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) ultrasonic detector with a numerical aperture of 0.28, a focal distance of 9 mm, and a bandwidth (−6  dB−6  dB level) of 24 MHz was used to obtain PA and US data with a 3 mm imaging depth. A fiber-optic system was …
