The leading cause of death in men and women in the United States is cardiovascular disease. Its early detection is the key in reducing the associated death toll. The ultimate objective in cardiac diagnostic imaging of this project is to develop a highly reliable and low-cost imaging technique for the mapping of ischemia and infarction. Cardiovascular elasticity imaging can, in the myocardium, detect and quantify the extent of ischemia and infarction, at and beyond its onset due to the associated significantly altered stiffness of the muscle. Further benefiting from the real-time capability and portability of this technology, this information can...
