Apparatus and method for imaging shear modulus within a body

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #8128564.

An apparatus and method for imaging a shear modulus within a body is disclosed. A method for imaging a shear modulus in accordance with the present invention includes generating an elastic wave inside an object to be measured; detecting the elastic wave ongoing inside the object to be measured; calculating a shear modulus of the inside of the object to be measured, based on a value obtained by differentiating the detected elastic wave one time; and imaging the inside of the object to be measured, based on the calculated shear modulus.
