PURPOSE To determine whether quantitative differences in shear-wave velocity (SWV) exist between normal skeletal muscle and those affected by GNE-related myopathy and to examine the effects of muscle anisotropy, depth, and axial preload on SWV in a healthy control group. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board and compliant with HIPAA. Informed consent was obtained from all study volunteers. Eight patients (four women and four men aged 30-50 years) with… CONTINUE READING
