Diffusion Tensor Imaging of skeletal muscle In recent years, a lot of progress has been made in the use of dynamic MRI for measuring the fiber architecture, the perfusion, as well as the mechanical properties and contractile activity of skeletal muscle tissue in vivo. These parameters are closely linked and their combined measurement in comprehensive scanning protocols yields a wealth of information for the improved understanding of the function of normal muscle and the mechanisms underlying impaired function in muscle disorders. We explore diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and fiber tracking techniques to non-invasively determine the in vivo three-dimensional architecture of skeletal muscle. Furthermore quantitative diffusion MRI is used for monitoring skeletal muscle injury and repair.
