enDetection of Fasciculations in Healthy and Diseased Muscle using UltrasonicResearch ArticleInvoluntary muscle activations are diagnostic indicators of neurodegenerative pathologies. Currently detected by invasive intramuscular electromyography, these muscle twitches are found to be visible in ultrasonic Images. We presented an automated computational approach for the detection of muscle twitches, and apply this to two muscles in healthy and motor neuron disease affected populations. The technique relies on motion tracking with in ultra sound sequences, extracting local movement informAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis, computational analysis, diagnostics, image processing, ultra sound115http://epixpub.com/article-details.php?articleid=53N.
