Lateral Gastrocnemius (GL)
- Estimate the midpoint between the popliteal crease and the musculotendinous junction between the gastrocnemius and Achilles tendon along the longitudinal axis of the lower leg.
- Place the probe in a short axis position and find the apex of the fascia between the medial and lateral heads of the gastrocnemius and the soleus.
- Move this apex to the extreme medial edge of the screen.
- Toggle the probe to achieve a hyperechoic (bright) reflection from the fascia just deep to the lateral head of the gastrocnemius.
- Capture the image.
