Tissue Elasticity Imaging offers an extensive treatment of the fundamentals and applications of this ground-breaking diagnostic modality. Many diseases, including cancers, change the tissue mechanical properties. Conventional methods cannot detect these changes; however, elasticity images, produced by slow tissue deformation or low-frequency vibration, can display these changes. Different elasticity imaging methods may be optimal for different applications. Volume 2 deals with applications. The techniques and results are presented for the assessment of breast, prostate, heart, liver, and thyroid tissues. For each application, details are provided for how to perform each technique and methods of interpretation, diagnostic criteria, quality assurance, challenges, and case studies. This book is an essential resource for all researchers and practitioners including scientists, radiologists, urologists, fellows, and residents interested in any elasticity imaging modality. First comprehensive reference on elasticity imaging Discusses the fundamentals of technology, limitations and their solutions, advanced methods, and future directions Addresses the technology as well as the applications Useful to both researchers and clinical practitioners Includes online reference section regularly updated with advances in technology and applications
