Abstract
We propose the further development of the optical detection setup towards photoacoustic (PA) and ultrasound (US) dual-modality section imaging. Both imaging modalities use optical generation and detection of ultrasound waves. A onesided chrome coated concave cylindrical optical lens is used as target to induce acoustic signals for US imaging and as acoustic mirror that forms acoustic images. By probing the temporal evolution of the acoustic images with an optical beam perpendicular to the acoustic axis and simultaneously rotating the object, data for reconstruction of PA and US slice images are acquired. All acoustic signals are excited optically via the thermoelastic effect using laser pulses coming from the same laser system.
