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 instrumentation
  • Details advanced methods for quantitative PAT, which allow the recovery of tissue optical absorption coefficient and/or acoustic properties
  • Explores the development of several image-enhancing schemes, including both software and hardware approaches
  • Examines array-based PAT systems that are the foundation for the realization of 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D PAT
  • Discusses photoacoustic microscopy (PAM) and combinations of PAT/PAM with other imaging methods
  • Considers contrast-agents-based molecular PAT, with both nontargeted and cell receptor–targeted methods
  • Describes clinical applications and animal studies in breast cancer detection, osteoarthritis diagnosis, seizure localization, intravascular imaging, and image-guided cancer therapy

Photoacoustic Tomography is an essential reference for graduate students, researchers, industry professionals, and those who wish to enter this exciting field.
