FIG. 2.

(a) TA signal generated by NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] solution at clinical injection concentration (0.5 M) and different biological tissues. (b) TA signals of the NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] at different concentrations. The error bars represent standard deviation obtained from 10 measurements. (c) Thermoacoustic CT of NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] at four different concentrations in plastic tubes with a diameter of 1.8 mm which were embedded in paraffin. A: water, B: 2.5 mM NMG2[Gd(DTPA)], C: 5 mM NMG2[Gd(DTPA)], D: 10 mM NMG2[Gd(DTPA)].

FIG. 3.

(Color online) (a) Thermoacoustic CT of human blood mixed with and without NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] in plastic tubes which were embedded in pork muscle tissue. Actual phantom was shown in the inset. E: blood, F: 10 mM NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] mixed with blood. (b) The quantitative results of(a).

FIG. 4.

Thermoacoustic CT of tumor bearing mouse before injection of NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] (a) and after in situ injection of NMG2[Gd(DTPA)] (b).
