A multi-frequency magnetic resonance elastography image
reconstruction method is presented with power-law
frequency dependency for the elastic properties. The
method is based on a nonlinear inversion framework and
uses a generalized Rayleigh damping model for the soft
tissue elastic energy absorption. Comparative
reconstructions in a healthy brain, based on three
frequencies of excitation, show improved fidelity and
definition within the power-law multi-frequency image.
Structures such as the ventricles and the falx cerebri
are clearly defined and possess material property values
in line with expectations.
