Muscle ultrasound and clinical severity in facioscapulohumeral dystrophy: is there a link ?

Takeaway

  • Muscle ultrasound reveals a significant increase in echogenicity in facioscapulohumeral dystrophy over one year which is linked to clinical severity at baseline.

Why this matters ?

    Muscle ultrasound may represent a useful, responsive biomarker in clinical trials for facioscapulohumeral dystrophy, particularly in early disease stages.
