Magnetic Resonance MR imaging-based motion and deformation tracking techniques combined with finite element FE analysis are a powerful method for soft tissue constitutive model parameter identification. However deriving deformation data from MR images is complex and generally requires validation. In this paper a validation method is presented based on a silicone gel phantom containing contrasting spherical markers. Tracking ofthese markers provides a direct measure of deformation. Validation of in vivo medical imaging techniques is often challenging due to the lack of appropriate reference data and the validation method may lack an appropriate reference. This paper evaluates a validation method using simulated MR image data. This provided an appropriate reference and allowed different error sources to be studied independently and allowed evaluation of the method for various signal-to-noise ratios SNRs . The geometric bias error was between X 10 .
