Purpose This study aimed to examine the reliability of extended field-of-view (EFOV) ultrasound imaging to evaluate the cross-sectional area (CSA) and echo intensity of abdominal skeletal muscles. Methods Twenty-seven healthy young males (age 18.6±1.0 years, body mass index 20.9±2.8 kg/m 2, waist circumference 75.0±7.9 cm, body fat 16.6±5.9%) visited the laboratory on 2 days. EFOV ultrasound images of the rectus abdominis, abdominal oblique, and erector spinae muscles were acquired at the height of …
