Abstract : We use a focused ultrasound beam to load a region of interest (ROI) in a tissue-mimicking phantom and read out the vibration amplitude of phantom particles from the modulation depth in the intensity autocorrelation of a coherent light beam that intercepted the ROI. The modulation depth, which is also affected by the local light absorption coefficient, which is employed in ultrasound assisted optical tomography, to read out absorption coefficient is greatly influenced by the vibration amplitude, depends to a great extend on local elasticity. We scan a plane in an elastography phantom with an inhomogeneous inclusion, in elasticity with the focused ultrasound and from the measured modulation depth variation create a qualitative map of the elasticity variation in the interrogated plane.
