Elastography: A Quantitative Method for Imaging the Elasticity of Biological Tissues
We describe a new method for quantitative imaging of strain and elastic modulus distributions in soft tissues. The method is based on external tissue compression, with subsequent computation of theExpand

Elastography: elasticity imaging using ultrasound with application to muscle and breast in vivo.
Changes in tissue elasticity are generally correlated with its pathological state. In many cases, despite the difference in elasticity, the small size of a lesion or its location deep in the bodyExpand

Fundamental mechanical limitations on the visualization of elasticity contrast in elastography.
Elastography is a new ultrasonic imaging technique that produces images (elastograms) of the elastic properties of complaint tissue. To determine the Young's modulus it is necessary to measure orExpand

Elastography: Ultrasonic imaging of tissue strain and elastic modulus in vivo
Abstract We review the principles of elastography and some of its accomplishments to date in the area of breast imaging in vivo. We present a literature review of a variety of methods for theExpand

Elastography of beef muscle.
Elastography, a technique that uses ultrasonic pulses to track the internal displacements of small tissue elements in response to an externally applied stress, has been applied to beef muscle. BeefExpand

Axial stress distributions between coaxial compressors in elastography: an analytical model.
We describe an analytical model to study the behavior of stress along the compression axis for different configurations of opposing circular compressors, as applied to elastography. The method isExpand

Ultrasonic imaging of the stress distribution in elastic media due to an external compressor.
We describe an experimental ultrasonic method capable of imaging the two-dimensional distribution of longitudinal stress in an elastic, tissue-like material due to an external compressor of arbitraryExpand

ELASTICITY CONTRAST IN ELASTOGRAPHY
Elastography is a new ultrasonic imaging technique that produces images (elastograms) of the elastic properties of compliant tissue. The ultrasonically measured quantity is the normal strainExpand
