Low-frequency gradient switching leads to substantial vibration of the patient table. Here we successfully demonstrate that these vibrations can be used to image the propagation of vibrational shear waves through the brain. This suggests a method allowing MR Elastography to be performed without the need for purpose-built hardware to generate the vibrations.
