Photoacoustic imaging, also known as optoacoustic imaging, is a non-radiative and non-ionizing imaging technology with promising applications in biomedicine. Combining the advantages of both optical and acoustic imaging, photoacoustic imaging possesses a wide spectrum of system configurations that can accommodate the needs of medical imaging, ranging from high spatial/temporal resolution to deep penetration. This seminar will start with the basic physics of photoacoustic phenomenon and expand to its applications in basic science and clinical research. Specifically, the topics include the diagnosis of prostate cancer and Inflammatory bowel disease, understanding the biomechanical mechanisms leading to glaucoma, and revealing the brain-vision connectivity.
