An optical imaging technique that is believed to be novel was developed for noninvasive cross-sectional imaging of tissuelike turbid media. By use of a sonoluminescence signal generated internally in the media with a 1-MHz continuous-wave ultrasound, two-dimensional images were produced for objects embedded in turbid media by a raster scan of the media. Multiple objects of different shapes were resolved with this imaging technique. The images showed a high contrast and good spatial resolution. The spatial resolution was limited by the focal size of the ultrasonic focus.
