Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) is a powerful new molecular imaging technology which combines high-resolution real-time ultrasound detection with the high specificity of optical contrast, thus giving information on physiological processes in vivo at a molecular and cellular level. Uniquely, it provides the capacity to detect either endogenous signals of interest such as oxy-/deoxy-hemoglobin or tissue contrast from exogenously administered agents including nanoparticles and fluorescent dyes or proteins. This presentation will focus on technical development and imaging applications in the following area:

• Oncology applications
• Particle biodistribution applications
• Whole body imaging
• High resolution raster scanning optoacoustic mesoscopy (RSOM) imaging
