Dynamic Ultrasound Study of the Quadriceps Muscle

It is always interesting to study the functionality of the muscles in real training conditions; in this period I am testing the usefulness of the ultrasound study performed during walking and running on the treadmill.

What is evident is a difference from the conventional examination in terms of shape and dimensions of the various muscle components, which work as a single entity.

In this study, I’m using a MyLab 9 ultrasound device from Esaote, with an external accessory called Probe-Fix which provides lengthy and stable fixation of the probe to the body.

In the video, you can see the quadriceps muscle study, but I’m also testing the hamstrings in the same conditions and during other physical activities, such as squatting and jumping.

Enjoy the video and stay tuned.

How to Find the Ulnar Nerve at the Elbow

about the correct ultrasound scanning techinchs to find the ulnar erve at the sulcus ulnaris

Have you seen my recent post “Subluxating Ulnar Nerve at the Elbow”? If yes, you may find also interesting how to locate the ulnar nerve at the sulcus ulnaris and the specific ultrasound scans. Use your own elbow to practice or try to ask to a friend or collegue to “share” their anatomy; in other words… Practice is the mother of skills!

In the video below you can find everything needed for your training, so enjoy the video and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.
