Optoacoustic spectroscopy has been explored as a modality for noninvasive Hgb measurement in multiple in vitro (40) and in vivo (41, 42) studies.
In their current configurations, optoacoustic and ultrasonic methods of Hgb/Hct determination are more difficult to implement in a clinical setting than spectroscopic or imaging methods, inhibiting their application in numerous settings discussed above.

Our recently developed five-dimensional optoacoustic tomography technique is ideally poised to overcome these limitations it has shown excellent capacity for imaging intrinsic contrast in entire brains of vertebrates and rodents non-invasively; delivers unmatched temporal resolution in the milliseconds range for true volumetric imaging in real time; capable of label-free observations of hemodynamic changes and sensitive to genetic markers of neural activity.
