Paper Abstract

An optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy system was designed and fabricated by integration of a two-dimensional scanning galvanometer, an objective lens, an unfocused ultrasound transducer and a sample stage for imaging blood vessels in vivo. In vivo blood vessels of mouse ear were clearly shown and the injured blood vessels were also monitored. The experimental results demonstrate that galvanometer-based photoacoustic microscopy holds clinical potential in detecting lesion of blood vessels.
