Two imaging techniques combining ultrasound and light are reviewed. The motivation is to combine the advantages of optical information and acoustic imaging resolution. The first technique is sonoluminescence tomography, where a sonoluminescence signal generated internally in the media by continuous-wave ultrasound is used. 2D images can be produced for objects embedded in turbid media by raster scanning the media. The second technique is ultrasound-modulated optical tomography, where a frequency-swept ultrasonic wave was used to modulate the laser light passing through a scattering medium. Multiple 1D images obtained at various positions perpendicular to the ultrasonic axis were composed to obtain a 2D tomographic image of the medium.
