PURPOSE To investigate the correlation between muscle function and metabolism in muscle tissue of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients by in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective study, we enrolled 8 boys with DMD and 8 healthy volunteers. In vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the soleus muscles was performed using a whole-body 3.0-Tesla imaging unit and a knee coil. The levels of trimethyl ammonium (TMA) and total creatine… CONTINUE READING
