Photoacoustic Imaging with Schlieren Optics to Provide Real-Time Imaging

Wide-field photoacoustic microscopy (PAM) images are challenging to display in real-time because these images are reconstructed from multiple one-dimensional scans. This delay limits both research and clinical applications for PAM. Schlieren optics is a technique that can visualize sound using standard microscope cameras. By combining Schlieren optics with PAM, this research aims to eliminate the need for image reconstruction from multiple one-dimensional scans.

Using Schlieren optics to reduce photoacoustic microscopy reconstruction time to that of the camera frame rate will speed up medical imaging.
