Does ultrasound elastography provide a valid estimation of the amount of muscle damage?

The inability of non-invasive techniques to estimate muscle damage limits our understanding of injury occurrence. Shear wave elastography (SWE) technique provides a reliable (Lacourpaille et al. 2012) and accurate (Eby et al. 2013) quantification of individual muscle shear modulus (i.e., stiffne...

Effect of loading-rate and strain-rate on mechanical behaviour of the patellar tendon when measured in vivo

There is theoretical and clinical need to accurately assess tendon mechanical properties non-invasively. Currently, a mismatch between in vitro and in vivo methodologies prevents the full validation of the latter. Furthermore, the viscous nature of tendon s, one their most important properties, i...
