Innovative photoacoustic imaging system with transparent piezo-electronic material was developed. High quality ZnO thin film was processed in a certain condition. VZO layer was acted as the electrode. Optical fiber for transmission of the high power laser was assessed. The imaging system successfully visualized normal and osteoarthritis knee joints of rats. The study was conducted with the collaboration of academia and industry.
