Title (EN) PHOTOACOUSTIC IMAGING AGENT
(FR) AGENT D'IMAGERIE PHOTOACOUSTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A molecular probe marked with a color center material is used as a photoacoustic imaging agent to obtain an acoustic signal of practically adequate intensity using weak near-infrared light, which has good in vivo penetration depth but has small excitation energy, and is within the maximum permissible exposure, in photoacoustic tomography (PAT) diagnosis of a living body.
(FR)Une sonde moléculaire marquée avec un matériau coloré au centre est utilisée en tant qu'agent d'imagerie photoacoustique pour obtenir un signal d'une intensité pratiquement adéquate en utilisant une lumière proche infrarouge, qui a une bonne profondeur de pénétration in vivo mais une petite énergie d'excitation, et qui se trouve dans la plage maximale d'exposition permissible, dans le diagnostic par tomographie photoacoustique (PAT) d'un corps humain.
