Photoacoustic Tomography Hardback
The concept of photoacoustic tomography (PAT) emerged in the mid-1990s, and the field of PAT is now rapidly moving forward.
Presenting the research of a well-respected pioneer and leading expert, Photoacoustic Tomography is a first-of-its-kind book covering the underlying principles and practical applications of PAT in a systematic manner.
Written in a tutorial format, the text:Addresses the fundamentals of PAT, the theory on photoacoustic effect, image reconstruction methods, and instrumentationDetails advanced methods for quantitative PAT, which allow the recovery of tissue optical absorption coefficient and/or acoustic propertiesExplores the development of several image-enhancing schemes, including both software and hardware approachesExamines array-based PAT systems that are the foundation for the realization of 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D PATDiscusses photoacoustic microscopy (PAM) and combinations of PAT/PAM with other imaging methodsConsiders contrast-agents-based molecular PAT, with both nontargeted and cell receptor-targeted methodsDescribes clinical applications and animal studies in breast cancer detection, osteoarthritis diagnosis, seizure localization, intravascular imaging, and image-guided cancer therapyPhotoacoustic Tomography is an essential reference for graduate students, researchers, industry professionals, and those who wish to enter this exciting field.
