This disclosure is based on the continuing development of our technique Shearwave Dispersion Ultrasound Vibrometry or SDUV (2004-237 & 2006-088) which non-invasively quantifies tissue stiffness and viscosity with ultrasound. Herein we propose methods to generate and detect larger SDUV motions for in vivo applications. (vibrometry) (SDUV)
