Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Elastography (DMRE) is a novel imaging technique which allows the quantification of muscle characteristics during a loaded MRE scan. Thigh muscle loading results in increased muscle stiffness. DMRE offers clinicians new insights into muscle engagement which aids in diagnosis and treatment for musculoskeletal pathologies. This work has shown DMRE is a sensitive tool to detect active muscle engagement.
