1. A method, comprising:

  • modulating a continuous light source in a photoacoustic spectroscopy sensor to emit a light having a wavelength absorbable by an absorber in a patient'"'"'s tissue;

    emitting the modulated light towards the patient'"'"'s tissue; and

    determining an amplitude component and a phase component of an acoustic wave generated in response to the emitted modulated light.
