Tissue Elasticity Imaging: Volume One, Theory and Methodsoffers an extensive treatment of the fundamentals and applications of this groundbreaking diagnostic modality. The book introduces elasticity imaging, its history, the fundamental physics, and the different elasticity imaging methods, along with their implementation details, problems and artefacts. It is an essential resource for all researchers and practitioners interested in any elasticity imaging modality. As many diseases, including cancers, alter tissue mechanical properties, it is not always possible for conventional methods to detect changes, but with elasticity images that are produced by slow tissue deformation or low-frequency vibration, these changes can be displayed.

  • Offers the first comprehensive reference on elasticity imaging
  • Discusses the fundamentals of technology and their limitations and solutions, along with advanced methods and future directions
  • Addresses the technologies and applications useful to both researchers and clinical practitioners
  • Includes an online reference section regularly updated with advances in technology and applications
