Several Lower Extremity MR Biomarkers Predict Future Ambulatory Function in Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
In a recently published article in Neurology, Krista Vandenborne and colleagues suggest that several magnetic resonance (MR) biomarkers from the lower extremities, including biomarkers from the proximal muscles, may be predictive of future ambulatory function in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. These predictive biomarkers include the vastus lateralis fat fraction, soleus fat fraction, vastus lateralis T2 MR imaging (MRI), and biceps femoris long head T2 MRI.
