Background: Analyze of myocardial and arterial wall tissue properties can potentially be used to diagnose cardiovascular pathophysiology. Many cardiovascular diseases, such as Left Bundle Branch Block, Myocardial Infarcts and arteriosclerosis alters tissue elasticity. A known analogue to tissue elasticity is the velocity of the propagating shear waves through tissue, which can be quantified non-invasively as shear wave velocity, derived from ultrasound Shear-Wave Imaging (SWI). The use of SWI techniques requires custom programming and a deep knowledge of research-based ultrasound systems. The aim of the current work is to develop an open-source software toolbox for acquisition of SWI imaging.
