The purpose of this research is to develop and test a method that provides a true planar strain map for a given imaged slice. The method takes the through-plane motion into consideration and corrects for the false strain component caused by through-plane rotation. Phantom and in-vivo results demonstrating the ability to remove the through-plane rotation effect from the strain maps are presented.
