Abstract
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that leads to the increasing risk of bone fracture. It is associated with a reduced mineral content, which results in the change of the bone architecture. Raman spectroscopy has an intrinsic sensitivity to the chemical content of the bone, but its application to study bones in vivo is limited due to strong optical scattering in tissue. It is proposed that Raman excitation with photoacoustic detection can successfully address the problem of chemically specific imaging in deep tissue. In this report, the principal possibility of such approach is evaluated.
