Transurethral MR elastography offers the potential to obtain high resolution stiffness images of the prostate gland. The purpose of this study was to adapt the local frequency estimator algorithm for the radial shear wave geometry associated with this approach. The stiffness estimates were compared between the conventional and modified LFE method.
