Abstract
Soft biological tissues manifest strongly pronounced nonlinear elastic behavior. Namely, the Young modulus for some tissues strongly depends on the applied stress. This property can be evaluated by compressional OCT elastography. We demonstrate the evaluation of nonlinear elastic properties on the samples of coronary arteries, breast cancer and cornea. The developed technique can be used for further investigation of the nonlinear properties of healthy and pathological tissues.
