In vivo Assessment of Shear Wave Propagation in Pennate Muscles using an Automatic Ultrasound Probe Alignment System

In vivo Assessment of Shear Wave Propagation in Pennate Muscles using an Automatic Ultrasound Probe Alignment System 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Abstract:

Goal: Skeletal muscle mechanics can be assessed in vivo using shear wave elastography. However, the impact of pennation angle on shear wave velocity (SWV) remains unclear. This study aims to quantify the effect by automatically aligning the ultrasound probe with muscle fiber orientation. Methods: We propose an automatic ultrasound probe …
