We are focusing on developing various array-based photoacoustic computed tomographic systems for breast cancer detection, brain investigation and finger joint imaging.

There are two major sub=modalities: acoustic-resolution photoacoustic microscopy (ARPAM) and optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy (ORPAM). Our lab are interested in both ARPAM and ORPAM and have got some interesting results.

The goal of this project is to develop a miniaturized imaging probe that integrates optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy, optical coherence tomography and ultrasound imaging. We successful integrated these three imaging modalities in a 1.8 mm imaging probe.
