Animated film about the functionality of multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT) and its applications. Through this form of optoacoustic imaging tissue is stimulated by a laser, resulting in acoustic effects which can then be detected by an ultrasound device. Through different frequencies of the laser light, different types of tissue can be stimulated and visualized. This technology makes it easy to detect tumors and inflammatory diseases without the need for invasive surgery.
