A maximum likelihood estimator for quantifying shifts in speckle patterns resulting from an applied stress to biological tissue is described. The estimator is then applied to calculating the strains and instantaneous strain rates in chicken skeletal muscle subjected to a dynamic acoustic (2 Hz) sinusoidal loading.
