By means of proton MRI, the spin-lattice relaxation times (T1 values) of pelvic and leg muscles were measured in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients and normal controls. The bound water fraction (BWF) was calculated from the T1 value obtained. In normal children, the T1 value decreased, and BWF increased with age. In DMD, the T1 value rapidly… (More)
