A method is described for quantifying tissue movement in vivo from the computation of correlation coefficient between pairs of A-scans with appropriate time separation. The method yields quantifiable and repeatable secondary patterns of soft tissue movement in response to primary cardiac movement in a given subject, shows consistently different results as between normal livers and a variety of abdominal tumours, and is sensitive to either progress or therapeutically-induced regression of malignant disease. While the results reported here have been obtained using somewhat simple and crude equipment, the method is well suited to implementation on a commercial real-time scanner.
