Torsion ultrasonic sensor for tissue mechanical characterization

Abstract

A sensor based on torsional waves is proposed, designed and validated to quantify elastic constants of soft tissue. The proposed transducer design is able to deploy a shear wave elastography technique that accurately quantifies the shear viscoelastic moduli of the tissue, which, as opposed to compression waves, are strongly dependent on the stroma… (More)
