High-resolution optoacoustic and ultrasound techniques for water monitoring in tissues

24 January 2022 • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM PST | Moscone West, Lobby (Level 3)

Abstract

Noninvasive, high-resolution water monitoring in tissues is important for diagnostics and management of diseases and for cosmetic applications. We proposed to use optoacoustics for water monitoring and in this work used combination of high-resolution optoacoustic and ultrasound measurements for probing different layers of skin in vivo. Water-induced optoacoustic response from epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissues was measured in the near-IR spectral range in which water is the major tissue chromophore. High-resolution ultrasound images confirmed probing from these specific layers and depths in skin. This indicates that these techniques combination can be used for high-resolution, accurate water monitoring in tissue layers.
