Paper Abstract

We have developed instrumentation for measuring the tissue- absorption properties of radio waves in the human body using thermoacoustic interactions. The imaging principles upon which this instrumentation is based are applicable to other irradiation sources, such as visible and IR. We present the imaging reconstruction methodology that we have developed for mapping radiation absorption pattern sin 3D. Both simulated and experimental data are used to illustrate imaging principles.
