Paper Abstract

It is challenging to image fluorescence objects with high spatial resolution in a highly scattering medium. Recently reported temperature-sensitive indocyanine green-loaded pluronic nanocapsules can potentially alleviate this problem. Here we demonstrate a frequency-domain temperature-modulated fluorescence tomography system that could acquire images at high intensity-focused ultrasound resolution with use of these nanocapsules. The system is experimentally verified with a phantom study, where a 3-mm fluorescence object embedded 2 cm deep in a turbid medium is successfully recovered based on both intensity and lifetime contrast.
