Paper Abstract

The spatial resolution of photoacoustic (PA) computed tomography (PACT) is limited by acoustic diffraction. Here, we report in vivo superresolution PACT, which breaks the acoustic diffraction limit by localizing the centers of single dyed droplets. The dyed droplets generate much stronger PA signals than blood and can flow smoothly in blood vessels; thus, they are excellent tracers for localization-based superresolution imaging. The flowing droplets were first localized, and then their center positions were used to construct a superresolution image that exhibits sharper features and more finely resolved vascular details. A 6-fold improvement in spatial resolution has been realized in vivo.
