Muscle imaging has been used largely as an adjunct in the assessment of patients with muscle disease and has been reported in descriptive terms only. Developments in computer-based image analysis techniques applied to muscle have enabled the quantification of muscle images using ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance techniques.

To examine the role of delay in recovery of peripheral muscle function following exercise in the fatigue experienced by patients with the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and to examine the influence of effort perception in limiting exercise performance in these patients, a study was carried out on a group of twelve patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and(More)
An attempt was made to identify all patients presenting with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) during a 10-year period in Lancashire and South Cumbria, England. An analysis of their place of residence was made using the postal code. This was used to allocate each patient to an electoral ward. Using such small areal units, it was found that more cases of(More)
Human adductor pollicis was fatigued during circulatory occlusion by supramaximal stimulation via the ulnar nerve using intermittent trains of stimuli in ascending (1, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Hz) and descending (100, 50, 20, 10 and 1 Hz) frequencies to investigate the contribution of relaxation rate slowing and post-tetanic potentiation (PTP) to fatigue(More)

We describe a rare case of an immuno-competent patient who had been previously been treated for Herpes Simplex Encephalitis (HSE) and represented 5 years later with a recurrence of their HSE. Both clinical episodes were confirmed by a CSF Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) assay showing the presence of the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1). While up to 26%(More)
