Real-time Volumetric Assessment of the Human Carotid Artery: Handheld Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography

Ivana IvankovicDaniel Razansky


Background Multispectral optical imaging has the capability of resolving hemoglobin, lipid, and water. Volumetric multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT) is a hybrid imaging technique that provides a unique combination of functional and molecular contrast with real-time handheld imaging. Purpose To investigate whether volumetric MSOT can provide real-time assessment of the anatomic and functional status of the human carotid artery bifurcation noninvasively. Materials and Methods Imaging of healthy volunteers (n = 16) was performed with a custom-designed handheld volumetric MSOT scanner capable of high-spatial-resolution (approximately 200 µm) and real-time (10 volumes/sec) three-dimensional imaging, while further providing spectroscopic capacity through fast tuning of the excitation light wavelength. For comparison and anatomic cross-validation, volunteers were also scanned with clinical B-mode US. Results Volumetric MSOT achieved real-time imaging and characterization of the entire carotid bifurcation area across three dimensions simultaneously captured in a single volumetric image frame. Analysis of the acquired data further showed that a higher contrast-to-noise ratio can be achieved for wavelengths corresponding to a h...Continue Reading
