Abstract

We currently present a design concept for a photoacoustic imaging endoscope as well as some preliminary experimental results. The device is based on the generation of acoustic waves in tissue by short laser pulses and the sensing of these waves with a thin, optical Fabry-Pérot etalon. The entire device is designed to be mounted on the tip of a needle to deliver high-resolution photoacoustic imaging for minimally-invasive clinical applications such as diagnosing kidney disease and guiding laparoscopic surgery.
