We present a novel extension of standard magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) measurement and analysis methods, which is applicable in cases where the medium is characterized by waveguides or fiber bundles (i.e., muscle) leading to constrained propagation of elastic waves. As a demonstration of this new method, MRI is utilized to identify the pathways of the individual fibers of a stalk of celery, and 3D MRE is then performed throughout the volume containing the celery fibers for a measurement… CONTINUE READING
