Abstract

Knowledge of the mechanical behaviour of biological tissue is fundamental to understanding both health and disease, and this is particularly true in the cardiovascular system. For example, arterial tissue stiffens with age and the most conclusive way to measure stiffness is through mechanical testing. This chapter will describe some of the methods used to measure mechanical properties of cardiovascular tissue both in the laboratory and in vivo using medical imaging.
