    Diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DTI) offers great potential for understanding structure-function relationships in skeletal muscle. The basis for these studies is that water diffuses more readily along the long axes of muscle fibers than along their transverse axes. This diffusion...

    Intramuscular haemangioma are uncommon benign neoplasms arising most frequently in the masseter and trapezius muscle. Due to its location it is often mistaken for a parotid swelling and rarely is an accurate pre-operative diagnosis achieved clinically. The intra-masseteric location also poses...
