We have demonstrated a method for shear wave elasticity imaging (SWEI). A shear wave was generated by a short focused ultrasound (FUS) pulse, and was tracked by collecting images with different delays (tdelay) between the FUS pulse and bipolar motion-encoding gradients (MEG). The time-of-flight (TOF) at each pixel was determined by the zero-crossing of the image phase as a function of tdelay. Based on the TOF map, a shear wave velocity map was generated in polar coordinates.
