A novel diffusion‐tensor MRI approach for skeletal muscle fascicle length measurements
Musculoskeletal (dys‐)function relies for a large part on muscle architecture which can be obtained using Diffusion‐Tensor MRI (DT‐MRI) and fiber tractography. However, reconstructed tracts oftenExpand

Assessment of passive muscle elongation using Diffusion Tensor MRI: Correlation between fiber length and diffusion coefficients
In this study we investigated the changes in fiber length and diffusion parameters as a consequence of passive lengthening and stretching of the calf muscles. We hypothesized that changes in radialExpand

Diffusion tensor MRI of the healthy brachial plexus
Introduction Diffusion Tensor MRI (DT-MRI) is a promising tool for the evaluation of brachial plexus pathology. Therefore, we introduce and evaluate a fast DT-MRI protocol (8min33s scanning with 5–10Expand

Diffusion‐prepared neurography of the brachial plexus with a large field‐of‐view at 3T
To study diffusion‐prepared neurography optimized for a large field‐of‐view (FOV) to include the neck and both shoulders. In a large FOV poor homogeneity of the magnetic field (B0) often leads toExpand
