Integrating photoacoustic microscopy, optical coherence tomography, OCT angiography, and fluorescence microscopy for multimodal imaging
We have developed a multimodal imaging system, which integrated optical resolution photoacoustic microscopy, optical coherence tomography, optical coherence tomography angiography, and confocal fluorescence microscopy in one platform. The system is able to image complementary features of a biological sample by combining different contrast mechanisms. We achieved fast imaging and large field of view by combining optical scanning with mechanical scanning, similar to our previous publication. We have demonstrated the capability of the multimodal imaging system by imaging a mouse ear in vivo .
