Abstract
We explore the use as contrast agents for photoacoustic tomography (PAT) of photosensitizers originally developed for the photodynamic therapy of cancer. We show that halogenated bacteriochlorins can enhance the sensitivity of PAT and increase the depth of the field probed by this technique.
