Photo acoustics for Breast Cancer- Update
"Researchers are in the initial stages of testing photoacoustics that may allow radiologists to detect breast tumors with improved accuracy without exposing patients to radiation. This research, published in the open-access journal Optics Express, isn’t yet ready for clinical implementation. Photoacoustics is a hybrid optical and acoustical imaging technique that uses red and infrared light technology, known as optical mammography, to image tissue and detect tumors."
