Strain imaging of corneal tissue with an ultrasound elasticity microscope.

Abstract

PURPOSE We hypothesize that high-resolution elasticity measurements can guide corrective refractive surgery of the cornea. Elasticity measurements would improve surgical outcomes by adding biomechanical information not used in existing clinical nomograms. As an initial investigation, we determined the usefulness and evaluated the ability of our ultrasound… (More)
