Paper Abstract

Tissue elasticity is an important biomarker for early prediction of diseases, and elastography methods have been developed for several modalities. In practice, photoacoustic imaging (PAI) provides information about the optical properties of deep-seated tissue based on an ultrasonic readout. In this study, we demonstrate the use of PAI to measure tissue elasticity through high frequency acquisitions. The method was tested using tissue mimicking agar phantoms and transducers of different frequencies. The results show that elastic contrast can be recovered from PA signals only using high-frequency transducers, given significant differences of elasticity between the imaging target and background.
