Low complexity and flexible baseband delay-multiply-and-sum photoacoustic array imaging (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Recently, radio-frequency (RF) delay-multiply-and-sum (RF-DMAS) algorithm has been proposed for photoacoustic (PA) imaging, featuring improved signal-to-noise ratio, contrast and lateral resolution. However, it requires oversampling to avoid aliasing and additional band-pass filtering (BPF) to keep the harmonic components for imaging. Here we propose baseband DMAS (BB-DMAS) algorithm for PA array imaging, offering similar results to the RF-DAMS ones but with simplified signal processing and additional flexibility. No oversampling and BPF is required. Experimental results show that the BB-DMAS algorithm provides similar image quality to the RF-DAMS one with lower complexity. The image quality can also be flexibly tuned accordingly.
