about

Tissue Elasticity Imaging: Volume 2: Clinical Applicationsoffers an extensive treatment of the fundamentals and applications of this groundbreaking diagnostic modality. 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, along with 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.

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, which are covered extensively in this volume.



  • Offers the 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 an online reference section regularly updated with advances in technology and applications
