Single track location comb-push ultrasound shear elastography (STL-CUSE)


Conference Paper

© 2017 IEEE. Single Track Location Shear Wave Elasticity Imaging (STL-SWEI) creates high resolution shear wave speed maps by comparing the tissue motion at each tracking location between spatially-offset radiation force excitations. While STL-SWEI circumvents the resolution-limiting effects of speckle noise, it requires a series of excitation-tracking ensembles to build up a lateral field of view, increasing the acquisition time. Comb-push ultrasound shear elastography (CUSE) is another novel shear wave method that uses adjacent subapertures to simultaneously excite multiple shear waves. We propose here a combination of the two methods, called single track location comb-push ultrasound shear elastography.
