For the first time, the feasibility of inducing and imaging thermal strain using an ultrasound imaging array is demonstrated. A commercial ultrasound scanner was used to heat and image a gelatin phantom with a cylindrical rubber inclusion. The inclusion was successfully characterized as an oil-bearing material using thermal strain imaging.
