For efficient and side effects-free pharmacological treatment, we here propose a theranostic system that enables transvascular drug delivery by photomechanical waves (PMWs) and photoacoustic (PA) imaging of the drug distribution; both functions are based on nanosecond laser pulses and can therefore be integrated in one system. Through optical fibers arranged around an ultrasound sensor, low-energy and high-energy nanosecond light pulses were transmitted respectively for PA imaging and PMW-based drug delivery by temporal switching. With the system, we delivered a test drug (Evans blue) to tumors in mice and visualized distributions of both the blood vessels and drug in the tissue in vivo, showing the validity of the system.
