sonoelastography

sonoelastography

[‚sō·nō‚i·las′täg·rə·fē]
(acoustics)
An ultrasound technique for imaging the relative elastic properties of soft tissue and, in particular, for imaging hard tumors within the human body, in which vibrations (shear waves) with low frequencies (less than 1000 hertz) are propagated through tissue while real-time Doppler techniques are used to image the resulting vibration pattern on an ultrasound scanner.
