Image: Fast functional photoacoustic microscopy of the mouse brain. Figure (d) shows a representative x-y projected brain vasculature image through an intact skull. Figure (e) shows a representative enhanced x-z projected brain vasculature image. Figure (f) shows photoacoustic microscopy of oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in the mouse brain, acquired by using the single-wavelength pulse-width-based method with two lasers (Photo courtesy of Washington University).

Photoacoustic Microscopy Enables Rapid Imaging of the Brain's Oxygen Metabolism

Photoacoustic microscopy is a novel imaging technique that was exploited by researchers to view the vascular morphology, blood oxygenation, blood flow, and oxygen metabolism in both resting and stimulated states in the mouse brain.  More...
