Digital image-based elasto-tomography: first experiments in surface based mechanical property estimation of gelatine phantoms (2005)
Digital Image-based Elasto-Tomography (DIET) is a novel surface-based elasticity reconstruction method for determining the elastic property distribution within the breast. Following on from proof of concept simulation studies, this research considers the motion evaluation and stiffness reconstruction of a soft tissue approximating gelatine phantom. This initial phantom work provides an intermediate stage between prior simulation studies more detailed phantom studies to follow. Reference points on the surface of a cylindrical phantom were successfully tracked and converted into a steady-state motion description. Motion error based mechanical property reconstruction allowed an estimation of the stiffness of the gelatine when actuated at 50 Hz. The reconstructed stiffness compared favorably with independently measured stiffness properties of the gelatine material when experimental assumptions were considered. An experimental noise estimate of 50% was confirmed accurate by comparing experimental motions to simulated motion data with added noise.
