ImagingDMD MRI Study (DuchenneConnect Webinar Series) - PPMD Community

ImagingDMD MRI Study (DuchenneConnect Webinar Series) - PPMD Community: Dr. Krista Vandenborne and Claudia Senesac, PT, PhD, PCS, both from the University of Florida, discuss the ImagingDMD Study. This study focuses on developing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a tool to monitor disease progression in Duchenne and to serve as an outcome measure for clinical trials.

The aim of the study is to determine whether noninvasive MRI outcome measures can replace muscle biopsies in evaluating the effectiveness of new treatments in future clinical trials. A second goal of this study is to characterize the progressive involvement of the lower extremity muscles to help guide the design of future clinical trials.
