We have developed dichroism optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy, capable of imaging polarization-dependent optical absorption (i.e., dichroism) with excellent specificity. This technical innovation enriches molecular photoacoustic contrasts and holds particular potential for detecting amyloid-associated neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases.
