International photoacoustic standardisation consortium (IPASC): community-led consensus-based standardisation for an emerging imaging modality (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Sarah E. Bohndiek

Paper Abstract

Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is an exciting emerging modality with many potential clinical and preclinical applications. Due to its nascent status, at present, no standards exist to define system performance or establish well-validated, consensus-based performance test methods. The International Photoacoustic Standardisation Consortium (IPASC) is a community-led organization that seeks to reach consensus on PAI standardisation to improve the quality of preclinical studies and accelerate clinical translation. Current IPASC activities include: phantom development; establishment of standard terminology and image quality metrics; and open-source data file format development. These activities aim to help PAI become a mature, widely-adopted imaging technology.
