We examined the influence of a single exercise session on quantitative muscle fat fraction MRI measurements. Ten healthy volunteers were scanned on a 3T body scanner before and after a session of bilateral squats until muscular fatigue. Axial in- and opposed phase images were acquired at a fixed distance from the knee joint and fat fractions were calculated using a 2-point Dixon technique as well as muscle cross sectional area at the same position. After the squat session, calculated fat… CONTINUE READING
