Magnetic Resonance and Optical Imaging of Dystrophic and Damaged Muscle

key information

study id #: NCT02168114

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: completed


The purpose of this research study is to determine the potential of Optical Imaging techniques to detect muscle damage in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and unaffected exercised muscle. Healthy subjects will undergo two different exercises in opposite forearms before any imaging techniques are performed. Boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will only undergo the imaging techniques without exercise.

intervention: Exercising, Optical and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy

mechanism of action: No pharmaceutical intervention
