Knowledge about mechanical tissue properties is required for functional modelling and simulating of tissue and organ responses to external mechanical stress. To get the right properties especially for functional modelling of organs, tissue properties have to be determined in vivo. There are only few described methods for characterization of internal organ's… CONTINUE READING
