Sonoluminescence tomography of turbid media


A novel optical imaging technique was developed for noninvasive cross-sectional imaging of tissue-like turbid media. By use of a sonoluminescence signal generated internally in the media by continuous-wave ultrasound, two-dimensional images were produced for objects embedded in turbid media by raster scanning the media. Multiple objects of different shapes were resolved using 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.
