AXT have recently been appointed distributor for Luxonus' 3D photoacoustic imager. This next-generation medical imaging technology generates more data, in greater detail, with less risk for patients and is ideal for medical research.

WARRIEWOOD, Australia - AussieJournal -- AXT is pleased to announce a further expansion to their preclinical imaging portfolio with the addition of Luxonus who have design and manufacture photoacoustic imaging systems. Their next-generation medical imaging technology generates much more data, in significantly greater detail, with less risk and less burden for patients and operators. These benefits come at lower cost than competitive technologies such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Luxonus' photoacoustic 3D imaging (PAI) provides super-high-resolution 3D imaging of blood vessels and lymph vessels safely and easily without using radiation exposure. Born out of Kyoto University and Keio University, and developed under the ImPACT program, a large national project, run by Japan's Cabinet Office to promote high-risk, high-impact R&D, this technology allows the accurate study of the morphology and function of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. The resultant data enables a comprehensive understanding of the onset of disease, the healing process and the state of health before and after illness.
