Abstract

Imaging the elastic properties of soft tissue using ultrasonic methods has been the focus of many international research efforts. The primary goal of these labors has been development of novel' imaging methodologies and techniques for estimating the elastic properties of soft tissue to differentiate normal from pathological states. In this paper, we focus on ultrasound-based tissue elasticity estimation strategies and imaging methods. More specifically, we will introduce and discuss the techniques known as compression elastography and vibration sonoelastography.
