Abstract
In this study, we proposed photoacoustic imaging to monitor the temperature increase during photothermal therapy, which was carried out by utilizing a continuous wave laser and photoabsorber-enhanced black ink with a absorption peak in the near-infrared optical range. A focusing photoacoustic imaging is interfaced with a nanosecond pulsed laser to image tissue-mimicking phantoms before and after laser irradiation. The results demonstrated that changes in the photoacoustic signal could reflect temperature changes in tissue. More importantly, photoacoustic signal could be used to determine the temperature at the boundary of photoabsorber-enhance tissue during photothermal irradiation. Thus, the photoacoustic imaging could potentially become an effective tool to guide photoabsorber-enhanced photothermal therapy.
