Scientists from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and Washington University in St. Louis have developed a new type of medical imaging that gives doctors a new look at live internal organs. The imaging combines two existing forms of medical imaging -- photoacoustic and ultrasound -- and uses them to generate a combined image that high-contrast, high-resolution image that could help doctors spot tumors more quickly.
