Comparison between 1D transient elastography and Supersonic Shear Imaging technique: Application to the arterial wall elasticity assessment

Early detection of biomechanical modifications in the arterial wall could be used as a predictor factor for various diseases, for example hypertension or atherosclerosis. In this work 1D transient elastography (TE) technique and Supersonic Shear Imaging (SSI) technique are used for the evaluation of the shear wave speed on a phantom consisting in 2.5 mm… CONTINUE READING
