In vivo photoacoustic imaging of transverse blood flow by using Doppler broadening of bandwidth


A method is proposed to measure transverse blood flow by using photoacoustic Doppler broadening of bandwidth. By measuring bovine blood flowing through a plastic tube, the linear dependence of the broadening on the flow speed was validated. The blood flow of the microvasculature in a mouse ear and a chicken embryo (stage 16) was also studied.
