Elastic Moduli of Breast and Prostate Tissues under Compression
To evaluate the dynamic range of tissue imaged by elastography, the mechanical behavior of breast and prostate tissue samples subject to compression loading has been investigated. A model for theExpand

Elastography: Ultrasonic estimation and imaging of the elastic properties of tissues
Abstract The basic principles of using sonographic techniques for imaging the elastic properties of tissues are described, with particular emphasis on elastography. After some preliminaries thatExpand

A Least-Squares Strain Estimator for Elastography
A least-squares strain estimator (LSQSE) for elastography is proposed. It is shown that with such an estimator, the signal-to-noise ratio in an elastogram (SNRe ) is significantly improved. ThisExpand

Elastographic characterization of HIFU-induced lesions in canine livers.
The elastographic visualization and evaluation of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)-induced lesions were investigated. The lesions were induced in vitro in freshly excised canine livers. TheExpand

Fundamental limitations on the contrast-transfer efficiency in elastography: an analytic study.
Elastography is a new ultrasonic imaging technique introduced to produce images of the Young's modulus distribution of compliant tissue. This Young's modulus distribution is derived from theExpand

Tradeoffs in Elastographic Imaging
This paper presents the tradeoffs in elastographic imaging. Elastography is viewed as a new imaging modality and presented in terms of three fundamental concepts that constitute the basis for theExpand
