Look and listen: Optoacoustic sensor utilization improves intravascular imaging

Researchers at the Laser Zentrum Hannover eV (LZH) in Germany and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, have developed an imaging technique that could enable the use of internal ultrasonic methods to gather information about heart tissues.

The technique, which is based on optical interferometry, involves equipping intravascular modules with optoacoustical imaging sensors capable of converting ultrasound signals into optical signals, thereby creating a more complete image of vascular walls.
