Reliable non-invasive assessment of mechanical properties of the arterial wall, either healthy or diseased, is of great importance for patient specific diagnosis in the field of vascular disease. Vascular elastography is a promising tool to assess these mechanical properties. Therefore, in this study, the most controllable and realistic approach of mechanical testing of arteries in vitro, inflation testing, is compared to the gold standard of mechanical testing, bi-axial testing.
