The aim of our study was to simulate an effective diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) pulse sequence and to evaluate the best b value in skeletal muscle. The evaluated pulse sequences were spin echo (SE), stimulated echo (STE), and gradient-recalled echo (GRE). The signal intensity changed in some DWI pulse sequences when the b value was changed. Moreover, the(More)
PURPOSE We used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to evaluate anisotropic changes in skeletal muscle cells under external pressure. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 6 healthy volunteers, we compared DTI of the tibialis anterior (TA) and soleus (SOL) muscles under pressure. We performed imaging using a 1.5-tesla magnetic resonance (MR) scanner and diffusion-weighted(More)
