Techniques that can quantitatively measure viscoelastic mechanical properties in arteries may be very useful to detect early disease processes. We propose the use of inducing waves in the arterial walls with acoustic radiation force (ARF) and measuring their propagation characteristics to solve for the viscoelastic material properties.
