This paper presents a novel, dual-stage elastic property reconstruction method for Magnetic Resonance Elastography which provides improved fidelity over fast, direct reconstruction methods while also improving convergence time for an optimisation based reconstruction method. Results are presented in both phantom and in-vivo data.
