As a skeletal muscle is being stretched, it reacts with increasing passive resistance. This passive force component is important for normal muscle function . Unfortunately, direct measurement of muscle force is still beyond the current state-of-the-art. In the present study, we investigate the feasibility of using Supersonic shear wave elastography (SWE) to indirectly measure passive muscle force using an ex-vivo chicken model.
