Planar Fabry-Pérot (FP) ultrasound sensor arrays have been used to produce in-vivo photoacoustic images of high quality due to their broad detection bandwidth, small element size, and dense spatial sampling. However like all planar arrays, FP sensors suffer from the limited view problem. Here, a multi-angle FP sensor system is described that mitigates the partial view effects of a planar FP sensor while retaining its detection advantages. The possibility of improving data acquisition speed through the use of sub-sampling techniques is also explored. The capabilities of the system are demonstrated with 3D images of pre-clinical targets
