Paper Abstract

This study demonstrated the performance of photoacoustic imaging at 1064 nm using phosphorus phthalocyanine (P-Pc), a contrast agent with strong absorption at 1064 nm. Due to high maximum permissible exposure of 1064 nm laser light and strong absorbance of P-Pc at 1064 nm, we demonstrated an imaging depth of 11.6 cm in chicken breast tissue. For animal imaging, we used P-Pc to target tumor and to track intestine dynamics. Thus, using a contrast medium with extreme absorption at 1064 nm readily enables high quality photoacoustic imaging at exceptional depths.
