Critical evaluation of commonly used methods to determine the concordance between sonography and magnetic resonance imaging: A comparative study

Publikation: Beiträge in ZeitschriftenZeitschriftenaufsätzeForschungbegutachtet


An increasing number of studies investigate the influence of training interventions on muscle thickness (MT) by using ultrasonography. Ultrasonography is stated as a reliable and valid tool to examine muscle morphology. Researches investigating the effects of a training intervention lasting a few weeks need a very precise measurement since increases in MT can be assumed as small. Therefore, the aim of the present work was to investigate the concordance between MT via sonography and muscle cross-sectional area (MCSA) determined via MRI imaging (gold standard) in the calf muscle.
