Paper Abstract

We investigated the validity of photoacoustic (PA) measurement for monitoring granulation tissue formed in the grafted artificial dermis (AD) in rats. We found that the depths of granulation tissue or neovascularities in the grafted AD can be monitored by PA measurement. There was a significant correlation between the PA signal amplitude and the density of neovascularities in the granulation tissue. These results suggest the usefulness of PA measurement for monitoring the adhesion of grafted ADs.
