Abstract

We present a 3D photoacoustic and ultrasound tomographic system intended for imaging of breast phantoms with the capacity to detect millimetric objects. The speciality of the ultrasound imaging part is that transmitters based on laser-induce ultrasound (LIUS) are used for acoustic generation. We describe the design and development of transmitters including an absorbing layer for photoacoustic generation.
