Special Issue "Biomedical Photoacoustic Imaging and Sensing Using
Affordable Resources" at Sensors journal


Submission deadline: *31 December 2020*

Photoacoustic (PA) or optoacoustic imaging is a hybrid imaging technique
with tremendous potential in multi-scale preclinical and clinical
biomedical applications. PA imaging is one of the fastest-growing
biomedical imaging modalities of the decade, offering scalable imaging
depth and resolution, and optical spectroscopic contrast, making it a
promising solution for real-time functional, molecular, and structural
imaging of tissue. Biomedical PA imaging is now at an exciting stage of
clinical translation and it is of paramount importance for academia and
industry to come up with portable and affordable light
delivery/detection solutions to accelerate the smooth transition to
clinic. This Special Issue encompasses a broad range of PA imaging
techniques, mainly focused on recent advances in light sources and
delivery methods, and new detection strategies towards affordable
point-of-care PA imaging.

Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

     Affordable and portable light sources (laser diodes, LED) and
delivery methods
     Novel ultrasonic sensors
     Signal processing methods and algorithms suitable for low-light
energy settings
     Image reconstruction algorithms
     Machine learning and deep learning methods
     Clutter and artifact reduction
     Phantoms for system standardization
     Photoacoustic spectroscopy
     Preclinical imaging studies
