Paper Abstract

Thermoacoustic signal excitation is a function of intrinsic tissue properties and illuminating electric field. We have designed a water-filled testbed propagating a controlled electric field with respect to pulse shape, power, and polarization. Illuminating with a known and carefully controlled E field will enable quantitative measurement of the thermoacoustic contrast mechanism.
