Paper Abstract

Performance studies of a clinical prototype for detecting tumors in the breast based on the photoacoustic effect are presented in terms of sensitivity, frequency response and resolution. Some imaging results on well characterized breast tissue phantoms with embedded tumor simulating inserts are also shown.
