In this study, we extend MRE to a low field strength of 0.5T that offers in-plane resolution of 150 micron x 150 micron. To verify the method, shear wave images through gel phantoms were obtained at a mechanical excitation frequency of 370Hz. Preliminary studies on rat brains demonstrate the feasibility of the using low filed MRE in determining mechanical properties.
