Abstract:A real-time photoacoustic imaging system is designed and built. This system is based on a commercially available ultrasound imaging system. It can achieve a frame rate of 8 frames/sec. Vasculature in the hand of a human volunteer is imaged, and the resulting photoacoustic image is combined with the ultrasound image. The real-time photo acoustic imaging system with a hybrid ultrasound probe is demonstrated by imaging the branching of subcutaneous blood vessels in the hand
