magnetization transfer (qMT) parameters can potentially be used as biomarker of
diseases. In this study, qMT parameters’ nominal value are determined for
selected muscle groups in healthy human subjects’ forearm, mid-thigh, and calf.
Nominal values of qMT parameters are
determined by taking the mean value across the subjects for each muscle group. From the results, strong correlations of qMT parameters between certain muscle groups
within the same individual subjects are observed, suggesting that the qMT parameters' variation is biological in origin.
