Abstract
A study of pulsed-microwave-induced thermoacoustic tomography in biological tissues is presented. A backprojection algorithm based on rigorous theory is used to reconstruct the cross-sectional image from the thermoacoustic measurement in a circular configuration that encloses the sample under study. The results demonstrate the possibility of application in detecting small tumors buried in biological tissues using microwave absorption contrast and ultrasound spatial resolution. Finally, the method is compared with laser-induced thermoacoustic tomography.
