Application of gCNR to Photoacoustic Imaging is a Top-Cited Paper

Published less than two years ago in June 2020, Application of the generalized contrast-to-noise ratio to assess photoacoustic image quality received the honor of being a top-cited paper in the journal Biomedical Optics Express in January 2022. This paper investigates a newly developed, probability-based, generalized contrast-to-noise (gCNR) when applied to photoacoustic images. We recommend gCNR as a new standard for assessment of novel photoacoustic beamforming and image formation techniques.

Congratulations to Kelley, Michelle, Mardava, Theron, and Prof. Bell for contributing this foundational development for the photoacoustics and biomedical optics community!
