Abstract

Diabetes is a major cause of morbidity, mortality, and health care costs worldwide. Studies indicate that an attenuation in the skeletal muscle microvascular response to insulin plays a critical role in type 2 diabetes and obesity-induced insulin resistance. However, the basis of impaired skeletal muscle microvascular function and its correlation to type 2 diabetes remains unclear. An improved knowledge of these processes will lead to new therapeutic strategies to help combat this devastating disease. To that end, the goal of this project was to evaluate the use of super-resolution ultrasound (SR-US) imaging for performing a quantitative analysis of insulin-mediated microvascular changes in skeletal muscle.
