Simulator for Application of Shear Wave Velocity Measurement System to Arbitrary Tissue Elasticity Distribution
Local shear wave velocity measurements are effective to obtain tissue elasticity map. We have proposed novel wave number spectrum based shear wave velocity measurement system. However, the accuracy and resolution of this technique should be optimized and sophisticated in future clinical application for breast cancer diagnosis. We propose a simulator of RF signal in shear wave velocity measurement system which can consider arbitrary shear wave propagation. We demonstrate the usefulness of this simulator by experimental result. Moreover, accuracy and resolution of small object is discussed for breast cancer application.
