Abstract

We report on experimental demonstration of photoacoustic tomography for simultaneous recovery of the optical and acoustic properties of heterogeneous media. Photoacoustic images are reconstructed from a series of tissue-like phantom experiments using a finite element-based reconstruction algorithm coupled with a scanning photoacoustic imaging system. The results show that the images obtained are quantitative in terms of the shape, size, location and optical and acoustic properties of the heterogeneities examined.
