Book Description

As a fast-growing imaging technology, photoacoustic (PA) imaging synergistically combines electromagnetic and ultrasonic waves providing higher contrast and resolution than conventional ultrasound imaging. This book presents the latest developments in this field, especially the advances in the detection of diseases using newly developed PA techniques.
