Applications Of Photo acoustic Imaging In Neurobiology

By: SA Perillo


Photoacoustic Imaging is a revolutionary, present day innovation that is used for imaging anatomies of small animals and is also used for investigating functions and processes. It is done in a non-invasive and in- vivo manner. This is a landmark innovation in the field of preclinical envisioning. Photoacoustic Imaging records highly sensitive optical imaging and ultrasound with high-resolution non-invasively and hence it accounts for the needs unique to researchers who deal with small animals. This is a very easy to use modality, which provides unmatched anatomical and functional visualizations of living animals. Applications of Photo acoustic imaging includes cancer, stroke, diabetes, nanoparticle detection , neurobiology and developmental biology.

Photoacoustics holds the capability to accurately detect and measure in the central nervous system of animals, all the three-measure process of brain namely functional, anatomical and physiological. This makes it apt to be used for research in neurobiology, for example in the research of Alzheimer's disease and stroke. Photoacoustic Imaging being non-invasive and in- vivo provides neurobiologists with high-resolution images of subcortical brain to make their study accurate and reliable. It can also be used to produce real-time images of spinal cord and the structure of early brain. It can also be used to guide injections through glass needles mainly of genetic materials, drugs, metabolic agents, cells etc.for developing embryos of small animals. It can also be used for studying and guiding extraction processes.

It can also be used in the study of neurobiological applications like neonatal and embryonic development of the brain, in the study of neural progressive degenerative diseases and lineage of cells using small animals as models by producing real-time, high-resolution images. Visualizations of blood flow in the cerebrum of the brain can also be generated using the system. Some photoacoustic models may also include molecular imaging and biomarkers.
