Abstract

Elasticity values reported by shear wave elastography techniques for Breast tissue/mass are a combination of elasticity and viscosity at the frequency with peak shear wave energy; thus, resulting in overestimation of tissue elasticity. To better estimate shear elasticity and to understand the role of shear viscosity in suspicious breast masses at different frequencies, the frequency dispersion of shear wave propagating inside suspicious breast masses is investigated.
