OBJECTIVE To examine the reliability of measurements of semispinalis capitis muscle (SECM) cross-sectional area (CSA) in prone and sitting positions, and to compare the muscle size in these two positions. DESIGN Semispinalis capitis CSA was measured twice a day on two successive days with a real-time ultrasound apparatus.
