Methods for detecting muscle fasculations from diffusion data. When muscles contract it causes signal dropouts in diffusion weighted data (Steidle 2015). The method for detecting muscle fasculations using optimized measurement protocols has been named MU-MRI (Heskamp 2021). Here methods allow to detect these fasculations from any type of diffusion weighted data. Back››
