System and method for acquiring optoacoustic data and producing parametric maps using subband acoustic compensation
A method is disclosed for generating sinograms by sampling transducers acoustically coupled with a surface of a volume after a pulse of light, each transducer being associated with a channel in an optoacoustic imaging system, and processing at least two multi-channel sinograms, each corresponding to a different one of the at least two different predominant wavelengths, to create at least two processed sinograms. The processing step includes a step of sub-band acoustic compensation.

Radiographic imaging apparatus, radiographic imaging system, and radiographic imaging method
There are provided the following components: an fpd that has a plurality of pixels, in which signal electric charges corresponding to amounts of x-rays incident are accumulated, and that is capable of nondestructively reading data which indicates the x-ray image; an amplifier that amplifies a signal sent from the fpd and has a variable gain; an evaluation value calculation section that obtains an evaluation value for evaluating the x-ray image; and a gain adjustment section that calculates a new gain of the amplifier used at the time of rereading. The gain of the amplifier is changed to a value of a new gain which is calculated by the gain adjustment section, and the x-ray image is reread..
