Figure 4: Representative T2-weighted and T2-parametric images. (a) Example of a T2-weighted image (T2) after injury in the wild-type (WT) mouse. The injured TA (dotted red circle) is easily discerned from the TA on the control side (dotted white circle) based on the increased T2 signal, presumably due to edema. (b) Even in noninjured mdx muscle, there are regions of hyperintensity (arrow), a characteristic finding in dystrophic muscle. (c-d) Example of a T2 parametric image (T2-p) after injury in the wild-type and mdx mouse.
