FIG. 1.

Schematic of the PAM system. The inset with a dashed line boundary shows the absorbers immersed in silicone oil and the ultrasonic transducer immersed in water. The acoustic flight time t from the absorbers to the ultrasonic transducer can be converted to depth based on the speeds of sound in the two media.

FIG. 2.

Axial resolution of PAM. (a) Two layers of red ink are smeared on a TPX plastic sheet (upper) and a glass slide (lower), respectively, for imaging. The gap between the two layers is filled with water or silicone oil. B-scan images of the water-filled sample (b) and the silicone-oil-filled sample (c). The CNR versus the axial distance between the two layers of the water-filled sample (d) and the silicone-oil-filled sample (e). The axial resolutions, defined as the axial distance with 6 dB CNR, are 7.8 μm for the water-filled sample and 5.8 μm for the silicone-oil-filled sample, respectively.

FIG. 3.

In vivo PAM images of a mouse ear. Top-view PAM images before (a) and after (b) injection of silicone oil. Side-view PAM images before (c) and after (d) injection of silicone oil. (e) Normalized PA amplitude along the dashed line in (c). (f) Normalized PA amplitude along the dashed line in (d). Corresponding features in (e) and (f) are labeled with numbers. (g) Overlay of (e) and (f) with the corresponding time axes, as indicated by the arrows.
