Elasticity reconstruction from displacement and confidence measures of a multi-compressed ultrasound RF sequence.

Abstract:

Ultrasound elasticity imaging shows promise as a new way for early detection of cancers by assessing the elastic characteristics of soft tissue. So far the commonly used approach involves solving the so-called inverse elasticity problem of recovering elastic parameters from displacement measurements. We propose a finite-elementbased nonlinear scheme to estimate the elasticity distribution of soft tissue from multi-compressed ultrasound radio frequency (RF) data. An experimental ultrasound wor...
