Photoacoustic Imaging for Delineation of Structural and Functional Abnormality in Epileptic Patients
Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is a novel imaging method that has had recent success for in vivo imaging of biological tissues. PAI combines the high optical contrast of optical imaging with the high spatial resolution of ultrasound. The functionality of this technique is based on the photoacoustic effect. Due to the ability of imaging function of a tissue, PAI has been valued in biological tissue imaging particularly in brain imaging.
