In a living organism, soft tissues remain in constant motion which, when voluntary movements are controlled, results from mechanical action of the cardiovascular system. In many diseases, elastic properties of tissues are pathologically altered; this will affect tissue response to a mechanical stimulus and, hence, its movement. Thus, analysis of tissue movement will play a potentially useful role in clinical tissue differentiation.
