|Condition or disease|
The primary objective of this pilot study is to assess PAI-performance in a clinical setting to understand limitations of our current PAI instrumentation and to help improve the next-generation design.
To do preliminary evaluations of oxygen saturation in lesions based on PAI-measurements in order to distinguish malignant from benign prostatic tissue as a basis for future studies.

- lesion signal intensity on Photoacoustic Imaging (PAI) in relation to different lesion characteristics and the surrounding tissues [ Time Frame: 36 months ]The types of measures can be divided into three groups: 1) Operator determined measures during or just after the examination; 2) Post processing measures determined during post processing of the captured data and images; 3) Measures related to standard imaging and histopathological examination.
