About This Webinar
Transenergy imaging modalities have been significantly explored to overcome existing problems in conventional imaging modalities with respect to spatial/temporal resolutions, penetration depth, signal-to-noise ratio, contrast, and so on. Among these modalities, photoacoustic imaging - an emerging hybrid modality that can provide strong endogenous and exogenous optical absorption contrasts with high ultrasonic spatial resolution - has overcome the fundamental depth limitation while keeping the spatial resolution. The image resolution, as well as the maximum imaging depth, is scalable with ultrasonic frequency within the reach of diffuse photons. Chulhong Kim discusses the topics of multimodal, multiscale, and multiparametric photoacousitc imaging systems; novel deep learning-powered image processing; recent clinical study results; and efforts to commercialize.
