Direct in vivo myocardial infarct visualization using 3D ultrasound and passive strain contrast

Conference Paper

An approach for myocardial elastography is presented for infarct visualization. Infarcts are visualized using passive strain in the ventricles induced by atrial contraction. Results are compared against ARFI and delay-enhanced contrast MR. © 2011 IEEE.
