Abstract:

MR Elastography (MRE) is a new method that uses phase contrast MR imaging to detect tissue response to external mechanical stimulation (shear wave excitation) for noninvasive and quantitative determination of tissue stiffness. MRE has great potential in Medicine and Material Science. MRE is currently used as MRI contrast for measuring the degree of damage by fibrosis in liver and kidney. Other applications, such as early detection of traumatic brain injury are being explored.
