Because of its low cost and ease of use, there is widespread adoption of ultrasound as an imaging modality for the musculoskeletal system. For example, traditional, two-dimensional, brightness mode (B-mode) ultrasound is currently being implemented to quantify muscle morphological adaptations in vivo for a broad and disparate range of applications. Ultrasound elastography, a newer modality, is increasingly being applied to the quantification of human muscle tissue mechanical properties. Clinical...
