Acoustic Radiation Force (ARF)-driven shear wave velocimetry is a validated way of quantitatively measuring tissue elasticity. Open-chest velocimetry experiments have been able to measure regional myocardial contractility, a potentially useful diagnostic parameter for heart disease, but a clinically-viable method of making this measurement is needed… CONTINUE READING
