Ultrasound-modulated optical tomography (UOT) is a form of tomography involving ultrasound.[1] It is used in imaging of biological soft tissues and has potential applications for early cancer detection.[2] Like optical techniques, this method provides high contrast, and the use of ultrasound also provides high resolution.


Was first proposed as a method for virus detection in 2013.[3]
