Abstract

Characterization of the viscoelastic properties of tissues at the micro-level has been a challenge for many years. Recently, several micro-elastography techniques have been developed with high frequency ultrasound or optical coherence tomography to improve the spatial resolution. However, most of these techniques did not consider the medium boundary conditions and still used traditional shear wave model to evaluate the viscoelastic properties of plate-like tissues, such as artery and cornea, which might lead to estimation errors. Therefore, the aim of the study is to integrate a lamb wave model with our previously developed ultrasonic micro-elastography system for obtaining accurate viscoelastic properties in plate-like tissues.
