Acoustoelasticity modeling of bladder tissue nonlinearity: Ex vivo study

Bladder is a complex organ and its proper function is closely tied to the mechanobiology of its multi-layer wall. Characterization of the bladder wall mechanical properties is crucial in diagnosis of diseases that can lead to lower tract infection and incontinence. Ultrasound bladder vibrometry has emerged as a noninvasive method for characterization of the… CONTINUE READING
