Abstract: Ultrasound elastography presents an interesting method for measuring differences in tissue stiffness inside a patient. Conventionally, palpation plays an important role in the examination of lesions. However, elastography measurements are typically displayed as images, i.e., the haptic feedback is lost. We describe a system to realize robotic ultrasound elastography and haptic feedback of differences in tissue stiffness. We also report results for initial phantom experiments which indicate that robotic ultrasound palpation is feasible
