Measuring Fascicle Lengths in Extrinsic and Intrinsic Thumb Muscles Using Extended Field-of-View Ultrasound

Testing the reliability and validity of measuring muscle fascicle lengths of two forearm muscles, the extensor carpi ulnaris(ECU) and the flexor pollicis longus(FPL), and an intrinsic thumb muscle, the abductor pollicis brevis(APB) using extended field of view ultrasound(EFOV-US) imaging.
