Abstract

This study aims to develop a viscoelastic database for muscles (VM: vastus medialis and Sr: sartorius) and subcutaneous adipose tissue with multifrequency magnetic resonance elastography (MMRE) coupled with rheological models. MMRE was performed on 13 subjects, at 70-90-110 Hz, to experimentally assess the elastic properties (μ) of passive and active (20% MVC) muscles. Then, numerical shear modulus (μ) and viscosity (η) were calculated using three rheological models (Voigt, Zener, Springpot). The elastic properties, obtained with the Springpot model, were closer to the experimental data for the different physiological tissues (μ Springpot_VM_Passive = 3.67 ± 0.71 kPa, μ Springpot_Sr = 6.89 ± 1.27 kPa, μ Springpot_Adipose Tissue = 1.61 ± 0.37 kPa) and at different muscle states (μ Springpot_VM_20%MVC = 11.29 ± 1.04 kPa). The viscosity parameter increased with the level of contraction (η _VM_ Passive_Springpot = 4.5 ± 1.64 Pa.s versus η _VM_20% MVC_Springpot = 12.14 ± 1.47 Pa.s ) and varied with the type of muscle. (η _VM_ Passive_Springpot = 4.5 ± 1.64 Pa.s versus η _Sr_Springpot = 6.63 ± 1.27 Pa.s). Similar viscosities were calculated for all tissues and rheological models. These first physiologically realistic viscoelastic parameters could be used by the physicians to better identify and monitor the effects of muscle disorder, and as a database for musculoskeletal model.
