Paper Abstract

This presentation reports a comparison between two handheld quantitative micro elastography (QME) methods: PZT actuated compression QME and manual compression QME. PZT actuated compression QME utilizes a PZT actuator to provide a periodic compression against the scanned sample, whilst manual compression QME utilizes the continuous motion of the user’s hand holding the probe to create compression against the sample. From our results, each method has its own advantages, and both methods are capable of measuring elasticity of the sample and distinguishing stiff tumor from regions of soft benign tissue on excised human breast specimens.
