PURPOSE The purpose of the study was threefold: to assess the reliability of shear wave velocities (SWV) measurements in normal skeletal muscles; to evaluate intra- and inter-operator reproducibility of measurements for a specific site of the muscle and for the mean value in the whole muscle. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two sets of measurements were performed at three weeks intervals of each other on 16 volunteers by two radiologists on medial gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior muscles. Each… CONTINUE READING
