Summary
The purpose of our study is to image human prostate tissue using a transrectal photoacoustic imaging probe.
Detailed Description
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE(S):

The primary objective of this pilot study is to assess PAI-performance in a clinical setting to understand limitations of our current PAI instrumentation and to help improve the next-generation design.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVE(S):

To do preliminary evaluations of oxygen saturation in lesions based on PAI-measurements in order to distinguish malignant from benign prostatic tissue as a basis for future studies.
