Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is capable of noninvasively quantifying the mechanical properties of skeletal muscles in vivo. This information can be clinically useful to understand the effects of pathologies on the mechanical properties of muscle and to quantify the effects of treatment. Advances in inversion algorithms quantify muscle anisotropy in… CONTINUE READING
