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.
