—This article describes a novel quasi-real time system for quantitative and volumetric measurement of tissue elasticity in the prostate. Tissue elasticity is com- puted by using a local frequency estimator to measure the three dimensional local wavelengths of a steady-state shear wave within the prostate gland. The shear wave is created using a mechanical voice coil shaker which transmits multi-frequency vibrations transperineally. Radio frequency data is streamed directly from a BK Medical…

Prostate vibro-elastography: Multi-frequency 1D over 3D steady-state shear wave imaging for quantitative elastic modulus measurement
A state of the art ultrasound system that is used to quantify tissue elasticity of the prostate has been expanded to a generic platform that can be used to provide real-time quantitative elasticity measurements in other organs.
Three-Dimensional Multi-Frequency Shear Wave Absolute Vibro-Elastography (3D S-WAVE) With a Matrix Array Transducer: Implementation and Preliminary In Vivo Study of the Liver
3D Shear Wave Absolute Vibro-Elastography with matrix array has the potential to deliver a similar assessment of liver fibrosis as MRE in a more accessible, inexpensive way, to a broader set of patients.
4-D ultrafast shear-wave imaging
3-D SWE based on ultrafast volumetric imaging in a clinically applicable configuration is demonstrated based on a 32 × 32 matrix phased array driven by a customized, programmable, 1024-channel ultrasound system to perform 4-D shear-wave imaging.
Vibro-elastography: direct FEM inversion of the shear wave equation without the local homogeneity assumption
To produce ultrasound images of tissue elasticity, the vibro-elastography technique involves applying a steady-state multi-frequency vibration to tissue, estimating displacements from ultrasound echo
Real-Time Quantitative Elasticity Imaging of Deep Tissue Using Free-Hand Conventional Ultrasound
The quantitative elasticity images produced by the technology are validated with magnetic resonance elastography images as the gold standard on standard elasticity phantoms and are currently being used in different clinical studies to image kidney fibrosis, liver Fibrosis, and prostate cancer.
Shear Wave Spectroscopy for In Vivo Quantification of Human Soft Tissues Visco-Elasticity
In vivo ability of the supersonic shear imaging technique to generate planar shear waves propagating in tissues is fully exploited and the new concept of In vivo shear wave spectroscopy (SWS) is introduced that could become an additional tool for tissue characterization.
Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) Imaging: a Review.
Methods have been developed that utilize impulsive radiation force excitations, and ARFI images have spatial resolution comparable to that of B-mode, often with greater contrast, providing matched, adjunctive information, and SWEI images provide quantitative information about the tissue stiffness, typically with lower spatial resolution.
Assessment of liver viscoelasticity using multifrequency MR elastography
Multifrequency MRE is well suited for the noninvasive differentiation of normal and fibrotic liver as it allows the measurement of rheologic material properties.
Bandpass sampling of high-frequency tissue motion
With bandpass sampling, it is feasible to use conventional beamforming on diagnostic ultrasound systems to perform high-frequency dynamic elastography and the method is simple to implement because it does not require beam interleaving, additional hardware, or synchronization.
Stiffness of prostate gland measured by transrectal real-time shear wave elastography for detection of prostate cancer: a feasibility study.
SWE can detect PCa by quantified the stiffness of entire prostate gland whether the lesions have been visible or not on gray-scale and Doppler ultrasound, and can be used to differentiate benign from malignant prostatic lesions.
