MSOT Imaging Enables High-Quality Optoacoustics

Using reconstruction methods, researchers created an MSOT scanner that gathers sound waves and translates them into images. MSOT imaging, a medical imaging technology, can potentially diagnose and assess various disorders. Its processing time could be more feasible in clinical settings.

Fast and low-quality picture reconstruction is possible with MSOT imaging methods. Long processing periods are necessary for the high-quality photos produced by complex algorithms. While they are unsuitable for real-time imaging, deep learning and model-based reconstructions can yield high-quality optoacoustic images.

Researchers created DeepMB, a deep-learning framework for optoacoustic imaging through MSOT that achieves correct reconstruction in 31 milliseconds per image based on genuine optoacoustic signals and ground-truth images.

The group demonstrated that DeepMB can rebuild images 1000 times more quickly than current techniques without sacrificing image quality. Clinicians may directly obtain excellent image quality from MSOT scans by using this technology to rebuild any patient scan precisely.

According to the researchers, DeepMB is a significant advancement in optoacoustic imaging. Real-time, high-quality optoacoustic imaging may benefit clinical research and ultimately benefit patient treatment.

DeepMB’s fundamental ideas are flexible and may be used with various optoacoustic imaging reconstruction techniques, such as those investigated at Helmholtz Munich. Other imaging modalities, such as magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and X-rays, might also use the DeepMB architecture.
