BACKGROUND The mechanical characterization of prostate tissue has not received much attention and is often disconnected from the clinic, where samples are readily attained. METHODS We developed a spherical indenter for the clinic to generate force-displacement data from ex vivo prostate tissue. Indentation velocity, depth, and sphere diameter, and four means of estimating elastic modulus (EM) were validated. EM was then estimated for 26 prostate specimens obtained via prostatectomy and 6… CONTINUE READING
