Detection of duchenne muscular dystrophy carriers: quantitative echography and creatine kinasemia

Abstract

Data obtained from simultaneous determinations of serum creatine-kinase levels and estimation of ultrasound attenuation values in muscles greatly improved the detection of obligate carriers of Duchenne muscular dystrophy than when only one of these methods was employed alone. Eleven carriers out of 19 had a high creatine-kinasemia level and nine carriers… (More)
