Biomechanical elastic properties are among the many variables used to characterize in vivo and in vitro tissues. Since these properties depend largely on the micro- and macroscopic structural organization tissue, it is crucial to understand the mechanical properties and the alterations that occur tissues respond to external forces or to disease processes. Using a novel technique called coherence elastography (OCE), we mapped the spatially distributed mechanical displacements strains in a… CONTINUE READING
