For the last few decades, sonoelastography has been widely utilized as a diagnostic ultrasound technique that provides a noninvasive means of estimating soft tissue elasticity and stiffness. Currently, sonoelastography has become one of the key methods for measuring mechanical properties of tissues, such as elasticity of soft tissues. The main types of sonoelastography used in biology and medicine are compression elastography, shear-wave elastography, and transient elastography.
This Special Issue aims to bring together recent studies on sonoelastography and their applications in medicine and biology. We welcome original research contributions and reviews of state-of-the-art studies from academia and industry. The Special Issue topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Advanced sonoelatography techniques
- Novel sonoelastography devices
- Biomedical sonoelastography applications
- Application of sonoelastography in sports injury diagnosis
- Usefulness of sonoelastography in the prevention of injuries
- Sonoelastography for the measurement of mechanical properties of tissues
- Ultrasound imaging and sonoelastography
- Other associate devices and applications

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
