MR elastography (MRE) is performed on ex-vivo prostate cancer specimens. The viscoelastic properties are probed at three frequencies. The reconstructed maps of both the shear (Gd) and loss (Gl) moduli registered to whole-mount histopathology can distinguish cancerous from healthy tissue. The ability to extract frequency dependent information is also assessed.
