Abstract
Accuracy of photoacoustic signal is the crux on measurement of oxygen saturation in functional photoacoustic imaging, which is influenced by factors such as defocus of laser beam, curve shape of large vessels and nonlinear saturation effect of optical absorption in biological tissues. We apply Monte Carlo model to simulate energy deposition in tissues and obtain photoacoustic signals reaching a simulated focused surface detector to investigate corresponding influence of these factors. We also apply compensation on photoacoustic imaging of in vivo cat cerebral cortex blood vessels, in which signals from different lateral positions of vessels are corrected based on simulation results. And this process on photoacoustic images can improve the smoothness and accuracy of oxygen saturation results.
