Hybrid optical and acoustic resolution optoacoustic endoscopy
We propose the implementation of hybrid optical and acoustic resolution optoacoustic endoscopy. Laser light is transmitted to tissue by two types of illumination for achieving optical and acoustic resolution imaging. A 20 MHz ultrasound detector is used for recording optoacoustic signals. The endoscopy probe attains 3.6 mm diameter and is fully encapsulated into a catheter system. We validate the imaging performance of the hybrid endoscope on phantoms and ex vivo and discuss the necessity fordoi:10.1364/ol.41.002708 pmid:27304269 fatcat:447xpjultfahlhd4lb6vpy2imy
