Playing tennis involves complex simultaneous motion patterns of several muscles of the shoulder. Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) perfusion imaging offers the possibility to map muscle activation by measuring changes in local blood flow. In this preliminary work four healthy right-handed volunteers were examined after tennis exercises using IVIM perfusion imaging. The results indicate a particular use of m. subscapularis and m. pectoralis major during forehand strokes and of the of m. subscapularis during service.
