Congratulations to Eduardo González! His first author paper entitled, Dual-wavelength photoacoustic atlas method to estimate fractional methylene blue and hemoglobin contents, was accepted to the Journal of Biomedical Optics.
This work discusses a novel approach to estimate concentration levels from a mixture of two photoacoustic-sensitive materials after only two laser wavelength emissions. The work builds on our previously proposed acoustic atlas alternative to spectral unmixing, and it is the first to present an acoustic-based photoacoustic estimator that relies on training sets to estimate concentration levels from mixtures of photoacoustic-sensitive materials. Results are promising for real-time monitoring of the concentration of contrast agents in the operating room.
