Development of a system for improved resolution of magnetic resonance elastography
Authors: Lee, F
Description: Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) involves the combination of the imaging capabilities of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with physical vibration of organs and tissues at sound frequencies. The results of MRE allow non-invasive organ and tissue examination and diagnosis of pathology. At present, the technology is nominally limited to frequencies less than 100 Hz, which limits the resolution of the MRE. Need exists for the development of higher vibrational frequency capability.
