Photoacoustic Microscopy Enables Imaging of Oxygen Saturation of Hemoglobin in the Mouse Brain

Photoacoustic Microscopy Enables Imaging of Oxygen Saturation of Hemoglobin in the Mouse Brain

Researchers studying cancer and other invasive diseases rely on high-resolution imaging to see tumors and other activity deep within the body's tissues. Using a new high-speed, high-resolution imaging method, Lihong Wang, PhD, and his team at Washington University in St. Louis were able to see blood flow, blood oxygenation, oxygen metabolism and other functions inside a living mouse brain at faster rates than ever before.
