Abstract

Muscle physiological cross-sectional area, as defined and measured by dividing the volume of the muscle by its fibre length, is proportional to the maximum strength of the muscle. It is one of the important parameters when considering muscle mechanics in sports science and, clinically in tendon transfer procedures. This study reports that tendon cross-sectional area correlated well with the physiological cross-sectional area of associated muscles.
