DIC and DVC algorithms combined with smoothing algorithm were applied to ultrasound B mode images to generate 2D and 3D elastograms. The DIC based elastograms have better accuracy than conventional time-gradient based elastograms, and can estimate the size and the relative elastic modulus of the inclusion with a reasonable accurately. The study shows the potential to apply DIC and DVC based elastograms to the in-vivo diagnosis of pathological tissue within the body, and to provide new information that is related to tissue structure and/or pathology.
