A new method is proposed for imaging the elasticity of tissue using magnetic resonance (MR). Using an external actuator to deform the tissue, local strains way according to local elasticity. The method produces images shows the distribution of strains with different grades of intensity; thus, revealing the underlying elasticity distribution. The advantages of the method are that imaging is much faster than other magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) techniques, there is no need for complicated computations, and it produces high-resolution images.
