© Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013. In addition to the conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods presented in Chap. 4, there are a number of advanced and quantitative MRI methods that can be used to further characterize skeletal muscle changes in neuromuscular diseases. This chapter considers the use of spectroscopy, sodium MRI, diffusion and perfusion measurements, measurement of T1 and T2 relaxation times, the three-point Dixon method for quantifying fat in fi ltration, and the use of novel contrast agents.
