Musclesense (SIMPLIFIED EDITION)


Musclesense is a trained artificial neural network for the anatomical segmentation of lower-limb MRI images in neuromuscular diseases. This simplified edition is tailored for lower-limb fat images obtained using generic MRI acquisition sequences, and methods of fat/water map extraction. A professional edition of Musclesense is available upon request for centres who are able to use our optimised 3-point Dixon sequence and the conventional algorithm of fat/water map extraction due to Glover and Schneider (1991).

The results will be sent to the following e-mail address:
