Path of the ultrasound probe during scanning the medial Gastrocnemius muscle (MGM). The probe follows the path over the black line. It starts proximal, with the probe perpendicular to the path. First, the probe will be guided from lateral to medial over the respectively lateral and medial condyle of the femur. Then the probe will be rotated and moved to distal between the medial and lateral border of medial Gastrocnemius muscle belly towards the distal end of the muscle belly, the Gastrocnemus muscle (GM) tendon and the calcaneus.
