Paper Abstract

Photoacoustic tomography with an array of line-shaped detectors is presented as a method to collect data for three-dimensional (3D) images in a short time. Signals measured with the detectors, which are arranged on a half-cylindrical surface, yield a projection image of the initial pressure distribution and a 3D image if the sample is rotated. The steps leading to a 3D reconstruction as well as an image of a chicken embryo are shown
