From: Photoacoustic imaging of tumour vascular permeability with indocyanine green in a mouse model

  Signal increase (a.u.)
Liver 0.234 ± 0.043
Kidney 0.204 ± 0.058
Salivary gland 0.604 ± 0.011a
Inferior vena cava 0.127 ± 0.040
Tumour 0.994 ± 0.175b
  1. Data are means ± SD. a.u. = arbitrary units
