Digital Image Elasto-Tomography (DIET) is a novel elastic contrast based breast imaging method using time-harmonic motion data obtained from a calibrated array of high resolution digital cameras scanning the tissue surface. The method is currently undergoing initial clinical testing and preliminary results in cases of malignant breast tumors are now available. The method has proved capable of detecting and localizing the stiff lesions within the heterogeneous tissue structure of the beast through the use of an evolution based optimization algorithm implemented in linear finite elements. The method has also proved successful at detecting both inclusion and non-inclusion cases in specially constructed tissue mimicking silicon phantoms.
