Tissue characterisation by ultrasound strain imaging

Abstract

Real-Time Elastography (RTE) is a new imaging modality that monitors tissue strain during applied stress. The aim of this thesis was to validate if RTE was a reliable modality to reflect pathologically induced differences in elasticity or tissue hardness and to interrogate if assessment of elastic changes by RTE could be used as a diagnostic tool in… (More)
