  annote =       {We propose a way of measuring elastic properties of
                  tissues in-vivo, using standard medical image
                  ultrasound machine without any special
                  hardware. Images are acquired while the tissue is
                  being deformed by a varying pressure applied by the
                  operator on the hand-held ultrasound probe. The
                  local elastic shear modulus u is either
                  estimated from a local displacement field
                  reconstructed by an elastic registration algorithm,
                  or both modulus u and the displacement are
                  estimated simultaneously. The relation between
                  modulus and displacement is calculated using a
                  finite element method (FEM). The estimation
                  algorithms were tested on both synthetic, phantom
                  and real subject data.},
