Non-invasive Assessment of Dorsiflexor Muscle Function in Mice


Measurement of rodent skeletal muscle contractile function is a useful tool that can be used to track disease progression as well as efficacy of therapeutic intervention. Here, Frederico Gerlinger-Romero of Deakin University and colleagues at University of Maryland and La Trobe University describe how to conduct repetitive, non-invasive in vivo assessment of the dorsiflexor muscles over time in the same mouse.
