This book is for engineers interested in developing new methods, as well as clinicians using techniques for measurement of soft tissue elasticity in vivo. It compares pros and cons of various measurement techniques, encompassing conventional methods new indentation methods of measurement, such as nanoindentation, suction measurement, indirect methods, elasticity imaging, modeling of tissue nonlinearity and viscoelasticity, and finite element methods. The final chapter describes clinical applications of soft tissue elasticity measurements in conditions such as liver fibrosis, cancer, and tissue degeneration. B&w photos, images, screenshots, diagrams, and charts are included. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
