Marvin Doyley Article Featured in Physics in Medicine and Biology

January 25, 2012

Marvin Doyley (ECE and BME) was invited to write a topical review article by the journal Physics in Medicine and Biology (PMB). This article, titled Model-based elastography: A survey of approached to the inverse elasticity problem, was published online in January and was selected by PMB as their featured article. The review is also featured as Editor's Choice by Medical Physics Web.

The article reviews current approaches to elastography and documents efforts to develop elastography within the framework of solving an inverse problem, so that elastography may provide reliable estimates of mechanical properties of tissue. Dr. Doyley is a member of the Rochester Center for Biomedical Ultrasound (RCBU).
