Abstract

Recently, there has been growing interest in the development of photoacoustic flow measuring methods aimed to study microvascular blood flow in biological tissue. Here, we describe the M-mode photoacoustic particle flow imaging, using an optical resolution photoacoustic microscope equipped with a high-repetition-rate pulsed dye laser. We studied the flow of a diluted dyed particle suspension in a small tube embedded in a nonscattering medium as well as in a scattering medium simulating biological tissue. Potentially, the method can be applied to detect the flow speed of single red blood cells in a capillary.
