Method to model elasticity parameters (i.e. elastography) of tissue as a complement to imaging

Elastography is the direct imaging of tissue elasticity parameters. The invention is a method of modeling of tissue called Modality Independent Elastography (MIE), within the context of dermoscopy imaging, for the purpose of optimizing the similarity between model-created images and the patient acquired images.
