In the last 10 years, Shear Wave Elastography became a very successful technique that is now widely used in medical diagnosis and is now commercialized by several companies. It is based on a multi-wave approach combining ultrasound and low frequency shear waves. We will give a historical perspective on all this field and we will show how these ideas has emerged in the ultrasound imaging community. We will describe the different approaches that were proposed and the limitations of each of them. We will show why some techniques have disappeared and we will discussed future perspectives of this field.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
