Title: ELASTOGRAPHIC IMAGING OF SOFT TISSUE IN VIVO
Abstract:
Elastographic images provide visualization in two or three dimensions of RF ablation lesions to guide in the ablation process. Compression may be applied using the RF probe. A similar technique may be applied to in vivo imaging of soft tissue without ablation.
