2. How is opto-acoustic imaging different from conventional ultrasound?

The existing optical and ultrasonic imaging techniques create images by transmitting energy in one form and detecting that energy in the same form, which greatly limits the information that can be captured and reported. Opto-acoustics transmits light energy, but detects sound energy by using multiple colors of laser light, a much broader range of data can be captured which makes the functional images possible.
