Hello everyone

I would like to inquire about the latest techniques in thickness
measurements of soft tissue membranes (fasciae, pericardium, valve
leaflets etc.) especially during deformation.
I am also interested to hear suggestions for methods that can be 1)
non-contacting and 2) independent of the tissue density (which may very
well change during the stretch).
I will try to circulate the answers.
