Paper Abstract

Scanning thermoacoustic tomography based on microwave- induced thermoacoustic waves was studied. 2D images of approximately 50-mm thick biological tissue samples were obtained experimentally. The thermoacoustic signals were also simulated theoretically. The image resolution was significantly improved compared with purely microwave imaging.
