The objective of this study was to apply cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using displacement encoding with stimulated echoes (DENSE) to measure the dynamic two-dimensional (2D) displacement and Lagrangian strain fields in the biceps brachii muscle. Six healthy volunteers underwent cine DENSE MRI during repeated elbow flexion against the load of gravity. Displacement encoded dynamic images of the upper arm were acquired with spatial and temporal resolutions of 1.9 x 1.9 mm(2) and 30 ms… CONTINUE READING
