Rapid functional optoacoustic micro- angiography in a burst mode

Optoacoustic microscopy (OAM) can image intrinsic optical absorption contrast at depths of several millimeters where state-of-the-art optical microscopy techniques fail due to intense light scattering in living tissues. Yet, wide adoption of OAM in biology and medicine is hindered by slow image acquisition speed, small field of view (FOV), and/or lack of spectral differentiation capacity …

Quantitative comparison of frequency- domain and delay-and-sum optoacoustic image reconstruction including the effect of coherence factor weighting

Image reconstruction in optoacoustic imaging is often based on a delay-and-sum (DAS) or a frequency domain (FD) algorithm. In this study, we performed a comprehensive comparison of these two algorithms together with coherence factor (CF) weighting using phantom and in-vivo mouse data obtained with optoacoustic microscopy. For this purpose we developed an FD based definition …
