The assessment of fiber architecture is of major interest in the progression of myocardial disease. Recent techniques such as magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging (MR-DTI) or ultrasound elastic tensor imaging (ETI) can derive the fiber directions by measuring the anisotropy of water diffusion or tissue elasticity, but these techniques present severe limitations in a clinical setting. In this study, we propose a new technique, backscatter tensor imaging (BTI), which enables determination… CONTINUE READING
