Abstract

Although the transducer array-based photoacoustic tomography (PAT) system provides fast imaging speed, its high cost and system complexity hinder its implementations. In this Letter, for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, the electrical slip ring was used to develop a PAT system that compromises the cost and the imaging speed. This system enables using multiple transducers to image the target simultaneously and continuously. In addition, it is versatile to use different transducers. The performance of this PAT system has been demonstrated by both phantom and in vivo animal experiments.
