Photoacoustic Imaging

Pushing the boundaries of imaging

Photoacoustic imaging has seen immense growth in the past decade, providing unprecedented spatial resolution and functional information.

This group combines the advantages of optical excitation and acoustic detection. Its members are developing the next-generation photoacoustic imaging tools and contrast agents, ranging from single molecule analysis to whole-body imaging.

Their research is at the cutting edge of imaging resolution, depths, and sensitivity and specificity with the help of chemists, physicists, biologists, and engineers across the Illinois campus.
