Functional T2w-MRI is used to depict activated muscle
area in the calf muscle after electromyographic
stimulation (EMS). By the example of the calf muscle and
by using strong stimulation levels it should be
investigated whether the activated muscle area only
depends on the distance to the stimulating electrode or
whether selective stimulations of the M. gastrocnemius
as an individual muscles is possible.
