Strain Imaging or Elastography means imaging of the elastic properties of tissue
using conventional, diagnostic ultrasound. Strain imaging can be used to detect hard tumors
which often can not be seen in the conventional ultrasound image.
For the worldwide first real time implementation of strain imaging -
which allows strain imaging in a clinical setting - Lorenz & Pesavento IT win the 2nd award of the
in November 2000.
