LOW-COST PHOTOACOUSTIC IMAGING

Photoacoustic imaging has rapidly gained importance in the field of biomedical imaging due to superior performance as compared to conventional optical imaging counterparts. However, the overall cost of developing a photoacoustic imaging system is one of the challenges towards clinical translation of this novel technique. The cost of a typical commercial system originates from an optical source, an ultrasound detector unit, and a data acquisition system. With growing applications of photoacoustic imaging, there is a tremendous demand towards reducing its cost. We have studied various approaches to reduce the overall cost of a photoacoustic system.
