Title:
Effects of small variations of speed of sound in optoacoustic tomographic imaging. 
Abstract:
Speed of sound difference in the imaged object and surrounding coupling medium may reduce the resolution and overall quality of optoacoustic tomographic reconstructions obtained by assuming a uniform acoustic medium. In this work, the authors investigate the effects of acoustic heterogeneities and discuss potential benefits of accounting for those during the reconstruction procedure.The time shift of optoacoustic signals in an acoustically heterogeneous medium is studied theoretically by compari...    »
