Abstract

We present an experimental proof-of-concept study on the performance of a sparse segmented annular array for optoacoustic imaging. A capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer was equipped with a negatively focused acoustic lens and scanned in an annular fashion to exploit the performance of the sparse array geometry proposed in our recent numerical studies [Biomed. Opt. Express 10, 1545 (2019) [CrossRef]  ; J. Biomed. Opt. 23, 025004 (2018) [CrossRef]  ]. A dedicated water tank was made using a 3D printer for light delivery and mounting the sample. A phantom experiment was carried out to showcase the possibility of full-field optoacoustic ultrasound (OPUS) imaging and confirm the earlier numerical results. This proof of concept opens the door towards a prototype of OPUS imaging for (pre-) clinical studies.
