Double Push Acoustic Radiation Force (DP ARF) Ultrasound for Monitoring Degeneration in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

key information

study id #: NCT01506518

condition: Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne

status: active, not recruiting


This is a pilot clinical trial to assess the ability of a new ultrasound-based imaging method, Double-Push Acoustic Radiation Force (DP ARF) ultrasound, to monitor the progression of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The hypothesis being tested is that DP ARF ultrasound delineates changes in muscle composition and function in individual dystrophic muscles, from early through late stages of disease development, that correlate to time to loss of ambulation in patient volunteers.

mechanism of action: No pharmaceutical intervention
