This suggests that for diagnosis and neurosurgical repair of injury to fascicle belonging to nerves to iliacus essentially requires the identification, isolation, location, orientation, shape and size of injured fascicles.
pHi, initial pH; pHu, ultimate pH; MFD, muscle fiber diameter; MFCSA, muscle fiber cross sectional area; MFSD, muscle fascicle diameter; MFSCSA, muscle fascicle cross sectional area; MFN, muscle fiber number.
Thus, static stretching would likely involve larger changes in stiffness of different tissues, especially muscle fascicles (Mizuno et al., 2013).
Ultrasound images were obtained from a linear array probe held perpendicularly for the measurement of muscle thickness and parallel for the measurement of pennation angle and fascicle length.
In the "water" set of images, the fascicles and the perineurium appeared hyperintense and we assumed that the overall fascicle volume would be hyperintense over a dark background including the epineurial collagen and fat.

Outcome measures included fascicle length, pennation angle and muscle thickness.
Jugular foramen schwannomas (JFS) are benign slowly growing tumors that arise from the sheath of a nerve fascicle and account for 3% to 4% of all intracranial schwannomas.
Structural changes that occur at the muscle fascicle level may include lengthening or shortening of the fascicle or a change in the orientation (i.e., pennation angle) of the muscle fibers as theyspan the muscle belly.
They are really fascicle because this is not how decisions should be taken about who should lead their parties," said Panda.
