Abstract. We analyzed muscular activity of the lower extremities during level walking using positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG). We examined 17 healthy male subjects; 11 were assigned to a walking group and 6 to a resting group. After 18F-FDG injection, the walking group subjects walked at a free speed for 15 min. A whole-body image was then obtained by a PET camera, and the standardized uptake ratio (SUR) was computed for each muscle. The SUR for each… Expand
Muscle Activity during Walking Measured Using 3D MRI Segmentations and [18F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose in Combination with Positron Emission Tomography.
TLDR
The FDG uptake as estimated from single slices did not correspond well to the uptake obtained from volumetric analysis, which illustrates the added value of the novel three-dimensional image analysis techniques. Expand
Glucose Uptake Is Decreased in Affected Lower Leg Muscles of Hemiparetic Persons during Level Walking.
TLDR
Energy consumption in lower extremity muscles during level walking in hemiparetic individuals was evaluated using positron emission tomography (PET) and standardized uptake ratio (SUR) was computed to express the (18)F-FDG-uptake level. Expand
Comparison of regional lower limb glucose metabolism in older adults during walking
TLDR
During walking, the FDG uptake in older adults was higher in hamstrings and deep layer hip muscles than that in young adults, suggesting that intervention to facilitate efficient muscle activity during walking should be practiced to improve gait endurance in Older adults with impaired walking patterns. Expand
Symmetry and spatial distribution of muscle glucose uptake in the lower limbs during walking measured using FDG-PET
TLDR
The clustering of voxels with high uptake suggests that even in this prolonged repetitive task, different spatial regions of muscles contribute differently to walking than others. Expand
Asymmetric glucose uptake in leg muscles of patients with Multiple Sclerosis during walking detected by [18F]-FDG PET/CT.
TLDR
[18F]-FDG uptake and strength asymmetries in the legs of patients with MS indicate greater metabolic costs during activity, which may play a major role in premature muscle fatigability and subsequent impaired walking capacity. Expand
Skeletal muscle metabolism on whole-body positron emission tomography during pitching
TLDR
The findings of this first study to evaluate whole-body muscle metabolism during pitching using PET-CT would be useful in determining the training required for pitchers, and can be further applied to other sporting activities that involve throwing. Expand
Whole Body Muscle Activity during the FIFA 11 + Evaluated by Positron Emission Tomography
Purpose: This study investigated the effect of the FIFA 11+ warm-up program on whole body muscle activity using positron emission tomography. Methods: Ten healthy male volunteers were divided into aExpand
PET/CT imaging of age- and task-associated differences in muscle activity during fatiguing contractions.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PET/CT imaging of [(18)F]-FDG uptake, but not surface EMG recordings, detected the modulation of muscle activity across the fatiguing tasks by the young men but not the old men. Expand
Whole Body Muscle Activity during the FIFA 11+ Program Evaluated by Positron Emission Tomography
TLDR
The hip abductor muscles and abdominal Rectus were active during part 2 of the FIFA 11+ program, and FDG accumulation within the abdominal rectus, gluteus medius and minimus were significantly higher in the exercise group than in the control group (P<0.05). Expand
Relationship between whole body oxygen consumption and skeletal muscle glucose metabolism during walking in older adults: FDG PET study
TLDR
Results indicate that FDG PET provides an index which reflects whole body energy metabolism during walking, and revealed that excess muscle activity in the hip muscles during walking plays a key role in increasing VO2 in older adults. Expand

Glucose uptake by individual skeletal muscles during running using whole-body positron emission tomography
TLDR
The results suggest that, during the moderate running of this study: (1) glucose uptake by muscles of the foot and leg below the knee joint clearly increases, (2) the r-c ratio differs significantly among the skeletal muscles, which act synergistically, and (3) sugar uptake by inactive skeletal muscles decreases. Expand
18F-FDG PET imaging of muscle activity in runners.
TLDR
Comparison of whole muscle activity during running indicated the highest metabolic activation was in the posterior compartment of the leg, whereas thigh muscles showed relatively little changes during running, indicating whole-body FDG PET, especially three-dimensional data acquisition, is a useful tool for the investigation of muscular activity during exercise. Expand
Quantified electromyography of lower-limb muscles during level walking.
TLDR
The important role of the triceps surae during walking was reflected in comparatively high muscular activity at push-off, and the magnitudes of tibialis anterior and tricepsSurae muscular activity were higher than those of the other muscles investigated. Expand
Whole-body metabolic map with positron emission tomography of a man after running
TLDR
It was found that F-FDG uptake was increased in the soleus and gastrocemius muscles—those most exercised in endurance running, indicating that PET can identify muscles used in physical activity. Expand
Functional evaluation of hip abductor muscles with use of magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the glutesus minimus muscle, along with the gluteus medius, plays an important role in hip abduction, gait, and stabilization of the pelvis. Expand
Timing and relative intensity of hip extensor and abductor muscle action during level and stair ambulation. An EMG study.
TLDR
The results indicated that the hip extensor muscles had different phasic patterns and moments of peak activity, and the upper portion of the gluteus maximus muscle functioned more like thegluteus medius muscle than the lower portion ofThe gluteUS maximus Muscle during both level and stair walking.

Electromyographic temporal analysis of gait: normal human locomotion.
TLDR
The telemetered electromyographic activity of pretibial muscles (tibialis anterior), triceps surae (lateral gastrocnemius), medial hamstring group and quadriceps (vastus lateralis) was examined during locomotion to correlate the EMG activity with eight specific components of the gait cycle. Expand

TLDR
The indirect knee-stabilizing function of the ankle plantar flexors in walking on the level is confirmed and an alternate hypothesis is offered instead of the theory that relates knee extension in the stance phase to movement of the center of gravity in front of the line of support. Expand
The anatomy and function of the gluteus minimus muscle.
TLDR
In order to investigate the functional anatomy of gluteus minimus, 16 hips in fresh cadavers were dissected and a model was developed using plastic bones, showing that one of its functions is to stabilise the head of the femur in the acetabulum by tightening the capsule and applying pressure on the head.

TLDR
The results suggest that the differences in maximally stimulated glucose transport activity among the three fiber types may be related to differences in their content of GLUT-4 protein. Expand
